Notes:  Mary Agnes Jean Noble was born 7 Sep 1910 in Cranbrook, Grey Township, Huron, Ontario.  She was the youngest of 7 children of James Noble and Robina Campbell.  She was known as Jean, and grew up on the family farm in Cranbrook.  Her older siblings were Walter, born in 1893, Harvey, 1896, Lena, 1897, Stuart, 1901, Ralph, 1905, and Jack, 1908.
Jean is listed in the 1911 Canada census with the entire family in Grey Township.  Her father was a farmer.  In the 1921 Canada census, only Lena, Ralph, Jack and Jean were still at home.  Jean was a public school student.  Her father was listed as a carpenter.

In a series of letters written from 1928 to 1932 to her cousin Donald Olson in Alhambra, California, Jean describes her family life, her small build and height (she weighed about 100 pounds), her dates, and the many community events that the younger crowd participated in.

Jean Higgins Jean married Alvie Higgins in Cranbrook on 7 Nov 1936.  Together they raised a family of four children in Brussels, Ontario.  In the photograph to the right, Jean is seen at a family wedding in 1991 in St. Marys, Ontario.  Alvie died in 1990.  After living in their home for forty years, Jean moved into a nursing home, the Huronlee, in April 1993.  She died 26 Dec 1993, and is buried in the Brussels Cemetery in Brussels, Huron, Ontario.
