    Census Records
    1871 & 1881 Census showing Samantha Jane Hewett living with the Darius Glover household, Windham Twp., Norfolk Co.
    1871 & 1881 Census showing Samantha Jane Hewett living with the Darius Glover household, Windham Twp., Norfolk Co.

    Samantha Jane Hewett, according to her marriage record, was the daughter of a William and Mary Hewitt of Norfolk Co. Her children by husband William Vann knew her as Jane Hewitt, and her grave has her name as Jane. The oldest of the Vann siblings, on various records have given their mother's maiden name to be Glover and/or Utter.

    It is interesting to see this Samantha Hewitt on the 1871 and 1881 censuses living with a Darius Glover household in the same area of Windham Twp. where she is buried (Vanessa). It seems she was raised by this (childless) couple - Darius Glover and Harriet Smith, along with two Utter children who were nephews of the Glovers.

    Perhaps Samantha Jane Hewitt and Jennie Glover and Jeanette Utter are a single individual??
