  (b. abt. 1844 Ireland   d. abt. 1900 Rhode Island, USA )  
Summary: Jane DAVIS was born abt. 1844 in Ireland. Jane DAVIS was the child of

Jane was an immigrant to the United States, arriving by 1867.

She married  John BAKER .  The couple had (at least) 9 children. John BAKER  was born abt. 1830 in Ireland.  He died abt. 1898 in Warwick, Rhode Island?. 

Jane DAVIS died abt. 1900 in Rhode Island, USA.

Appears to have been born somewhere in Southern Ireland (in the area that would become the Irish Free State in 1922).

Could she possibly be from Killygordon, Co. Donegal, Ireland? (Long shot)

From castlegarden.org -- this is the only one I have found so far that seems to match at all -- what are the odds?
