  • Notes 
    • From David Frame on 8-28-2002: From my great great great grandmother's Obituary it says Jane Ramage was born in Edinburg Scotland May 10.1809 When she was 4 years old she moved to Glasgow. In her 9th year the family emigrated to America settling in Canada West. Miss Ramage passed her 9th birthday on the Ocean during this trip. ( I think they resided in Spencerville, Ontario, Canada (maybe Edwardsburg Township) ________________________________ From David Frame on 13 Nov 2002 : Jane Ramage (born in Edinburgh Scotland in 1809) She came to Canada about 9 years later. She married George Gibson in 1832. They farmed in Edwardsburg Twn. Grenville Co. Ontario in 1851. Jane's Father was William Ramage who was married to Nell (Ellen) Walker. William's father was David Ramage who was married to Janet Cameron.

      Obituary from the Journal and Herald, Owatonna, Minnesota, Friday, December 17, 1886" Death of Mrs. Jane Gibson. Died at her home in Merton, at 3 o'clock Saturday morning, Dec. 11. Mrs. Jane Gibson in the 77th year of her age. The deceased, whose maiden name was Ramage, was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, May 10, 1809. When four year old the family moved to Glasgow and in her ninth year they emigrated to America, settling in Canada West. Miss Ramage passed her ninth birthday on the ocean during the trip. In 1832 the deceased was married to Geo. Gibson, who survives her. They came to Steele county in May, 1865 and have since resided in Medford and Merton, there residence being in the latter place the greater portion of the time. During an unusually long and happy married life they were blessed with eight children -- four boys and four girls -- all of whom are still living except one girl. The deceased was noted for her kind heart and charitable disposition. Especially was she a favorite among the children and nothing gave them greater pleasure than to pay a visit to "Grandma Gibson." She was a practicle Christian, having been reared in the faith of the Presbyterian church. The funeral services were held in the Merton Church at 10 o'clock Sunday afternoon[sic]. Rev. Wm. L. Sutherland, of Medford, delivered an eloquent address. There was a large attendance, old friends coming from a long distance to pay the last sad tribute of respect.
