  • Notes 
    • When in 1877 she registered the birth of her youngest daughter Alexina stating that her husband Andrew was the father. Andrew had deserted Jessie some 5 years earlier when he ran off with the wife of one of his labourers - so the story goes.
      The minister thought so little of Jessie's story that he recorded this on Alexina's baptism records. owever checking the actual birth certificate shows that it was stated that Andrew was NOT her father
