Biographical history

Jennie Maude Miles was born February 10, 1866 in Hancock, Maine. She was educated in Boston, Massachusetts from the age of twelve until she received her degree in music. In 1884, she came to Treherne, Manitoba to teach music. In 1885, she married Nathan Little, a druggist and a musician from Cypress River, a town just west of Treherne. Soon after, they moved to Fork River, Manitoba (located about 40 km north of Dauphin) where Nathan became the postmaster. When Nathan died in 1920, Jennie Maude Little moved in with her daughter and son-in-law, Grace and Edwin Cameron, who lived on a farm near Neepawa, Manitoba. Little died on November 11, 1955.
