Meet Eliza Maria Harvey Jones

Eliza first caught my eye as someone I wanted to know more about when I discovered she was a pioneer in the Canadian dairy industry. I also wanted to know more about her relationship with her husband, Chillion. How did they manage with her dairying operation based in Brockville while he worked as an architect in Ottawa and then as the head of two major Gananoque companies.

Born: December 24, 1837.
Married: Chillion Jones, November 29, 1859.
Died: in Gananoque: April 6, 1903.
