  • ID: I587
  • Name: Jane DOWNING
  • Given Name: Jane
  • Surname: Downing
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: 27 JUL 1761 in E. Caln,Chester county,PA
  • Death: 20 JUN 1813 in Chester co.,PA
  • Note:
    Jane Downing, eldest daughter of Thomas, was born on July 27, 1761. Her
    sister, Mary Downing, the next born in that family, was born on October 14,
    1763. Three sources, including the "History of Chester County", 1881, confirm
    that these two sisters died on the same date, June 20, 1813. Jane was 51 years
    old; Mary, 49. Both deaths occurred in West Chester, Chester County,
    Pennsylvania.
  • Note:
    Research has failed to show any widespread disaster in Chester County on that
    date. The intreguing question remains: What did these two middle-aged sisters
    die of on the same date? Fire? Drowning? Coincidence? These are the things
    that make genealogical research so very fascinating.
