Found Jane Eliza (Jennie) in all the census - 1900 (17y, so not alive in 1880), 1910, 1920, 1930, 1940 all from Dryden New York
Her nickname was Jennie and she is referred to as Jennie most of the time except when she was younger. She married Joseph William Little in 1911 in Dryden, NY. Did you catch the fact that both have the same last name of LITTLE. Yes they do and YES they are related "first cousins" I have not talked about Joseph William Little yet. He is the son of Joseph and Margaretta (Lowden) Little which is Isaac and Jane Mounsey LITTLE's 10th child and is the sibbling that follows Mounsey LITTLE. [so it probably will be several days to a week or so before I get to Joseph Little- it will be after all of Mounsey children]

Yes they are first cousins - they did not have any children. But they did take care of their nephew Paul and my mother Mary Jane,. a niece. I was told that Jennie was religious and very strict. No frills household.
