|Notes: Infant Fannie at about 9 months old left England for North American with her parents and two older brothers. They boarded the S.S. Arragon and arrived in New York on 9 May 1873. By Dec 1874 the family arrived at Parkhill in Middlesex County, Ontario, Canada. Then, by Jan 1877, the family settled in Bosanquet, Lambton County, Ontario.|
| Fannie was widowed by the 1911 death of her first husband, John Culley.|
In 1914 she married James Jones and moved to Drumheller and then Richdale, Alberta, Canada. In Feb 1916 Fannie with son Ralph entered the U.S. via Victoria, B.C, to visit her parents during their 50th anniversary party in Corning, California, on 6 Mar 1916. The first two photos show Fannie with her parents and siblings at that party. Fannie was 5' 7" tall and had blue eyes.
The two photos below right show Fannie with her siblings and her youngest son, Ralph Culley — taken in California and probably also during March 1916.
Fannie was still living in Richdale, Alberta, when her second husband James joined the army on 12 May 1916. When James was killed in action 13½ months later, Fannie was living at 2210 W. 24th Street in Calgary, Alberta.
In 1999, John Ernest Culley said We remember Fannie Jane fondly — we called her Grandma Jones, and even for us as small kids we really enjoyed going to visit her at her small house in Calgary. She was a very cheerful, pleasant person.
