Abt 1800 - 11/9/1870
Ann was Calum's Jamie's and Pippa's six times great grandmother.
Very little is known about Ann. She married Robert
Strain at some stage prior to 1823, and had at least eight children with him in the parish of Raphoe, Co. Donegal, Ireland.
DNA connections to descendants of her daughter Eliza Jane,
born in about 1823, and who later emigrated to New Zealand, confirmed Ann's maiden name as Stafford. No marriage record
has been found for her in Ireland to Robert.
Ann predeceased her husband on 11 SEP 1870 at Tullyvinny townland, Raphoe. In her death record she
was noted as a labourer's wife (Source: RootsIreland.ie). The full original record has yet to be consulted.
