|John Dosland||RE: Sanford Parish Hayes|
Thanks, I didn't make notes on Jonathan's first family. I did note Abigail Burton, as first wife, married 1828 in Sarpy,,Vermont.
|John Dosland||Christiena Smith|
Hi: I want to thank you for your inquiry regarding the 1881 semi orphan Smith children. I would not have looked for Christina without your question. She is on Find A Grave. She is in Montgomery County, under the name of Christiena Smith. I have had her bio upddated and requested links to her parents and to five children that I found. The links are in place.
Thank you again. I really appreciate your contribution.

Maybe you had a typo. That is the correct email address.
|John Dosland||RE: Christina Johnson Smith|
I noticed Sophrina in a Smith pedigree. Is that your source also? Born in 1878 I am not sure how long she lived. I would suspect that Christina's death in 1878 probably had something to do with complications of chilhbirth. It was so common then. I have an old illegible family source for Christina's birth date, so I checked out the records in Norway. According to the original records, whe was born January 20, 1839. On January 24, 1839 she was baptised and given the name Christi. Her parents were, of course, Johannes Johannesen Dosland and Lisbeth Arnesdatter. This information is from the Hordaland, Kvinnherad Ministerial book
The Smith pedigree also indicated that Christina died in Montgomery, Iowa. Her husband's family may have settled in that area. Christina at one time lived in Pilot/Rock Townships in Cherokee County. Information I have indicates that Roy Jonathan and Margaret B Hayes were born in Pilot Township, Cherokee County. I am wondering If anyone has some idea of where Christina might be buried? She in the only one of the six Johnson siblings that is missing burial location.
|John Dosland||RE: Ab Johnson|
I do not know the name Ab Johnson. Perhaps it is a knickname? Do you remember your grandfather's comments about him? You know Jock Hayes, of course.
|John Dosland||RE: 18 year old|
In 1860 John Smith was age 22 and Christina Johnson was 20. The children were born after 1860. Elizabeth (Libby) Smith was 18 in the 1880 census, so her birth year would be about 1862. Christina would have been about 22 or 23 when Elizabeth was born, not 13.
I am sorry but I haven't found a birthday for her sister as of yet. I am related to Dawson so I haven't searched that line much yet. I am sorry I am not much help. If I ever come across anything I will message you. Good luck take care,
|John Dosland||RE: Who are the Smith Children|
Thank you for the question on the Smith children. I can help. In 1880 Eliza Smith age 15 was living in the household of Margaret and Jonathan Hayes. She was a niece. The Hayes children were young. Three other Smith children lived with Margaret's brother, John D. Johnson. The children living in John D. Johnson's household in 1880 were Eldora Smith, age 8, John Smith, age 4 and Libbie (Elizabeth) A. Smith, age 18. These children were identified as nieces and nephew in John D. Johnson's household. Margaret Johnson Hayes had three brothers and two sisters. The husband of Margaret's sister Christina (Christine) Johnson, I recalled was named Smith. I found an 1870 census record (Cherokee County, Iowa) for Christina, her husband John M. Smith and five of the older children. Elizabeth (Libbie) A. Smith and Eliza Smith were reported as daughters of John and Christina. Also, when Eliza was married, her marriage record showed John Smith as her father and Christina Johnson as her mother.
So, the bottom line is John M. Smith and Christina Johnson Smith are the parents of these children. "Christine E. Johnson" died in 1878, according to an old family note.

No doubt it is an L on the grave stone. I have seen mistakes on tombstones before. If he died it that area and same dates, sure it is same person.
