Mrs. Harmon Andrews
She was most likely born in early 1840s in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. She began school at the age of six and like the other women in the village, she did not continue with her studies. It is possible she met Harmon Andrews during her school years and some time later she accepted his proposal.
They got married in early 1860s and settled down in Harmon's house located near Green Gables and Robert Bell's house. Harmon's unmarried sister Isabella lived with them. Not long after the wedding, Mrs. Andrews gave birth to her first child, a son named Billy. Her older daughter, Jane, was born in 1865. In the 1870s, she gave birth to her younger children, Gracie and Ralph.
