  • Name Jane C. Brown  [2
    • A Findagrave.com memorial for a Jane C. Seagroves, born 1833 in Tennessee and died in 1880 says that "Dates, places and spelling of maiden name are educated guesses." That FAG entry reports that Jane's burial place is "Unknown".
      However, the date of birth and place of birth tie closely with the two census records for this wife of William Seagroves.
      Also, it and some Ancestry trees give Jane a maiden name of Biship [probably intended to be Bishop] which is not otherwise supported in the historical records. The marriage record for a William Segraves and Jane C. Brown in Rutherford County, Tennessee listed in "Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002" on Ancestry.com and attached to this William Seagroves clearly shows her name as "Brown", not Bishop. The age of their first child as shown on the 1860 census: William Thomas, 12, born in TN, is consistent with a marriage in 1847.
      No reliance has been placed on these "educated guesses" and only information discovered in actual sources has been used for William and Jane. [1, 2]

    • 1832 is an average birth year based on the birth year of 1831 reported on the 1860 census and the birth year of 1833 reported on the 1870 census. No other source mentions her date of birth, so 1832 seems reasonable. [3, 4]
