In the 1900 U.S. census taken at Manistique, Michigan, Sylvester and Henrietta Smith are listed.
In the 1910 U.S. census taken at Manistique, Michigan, Sylvester and Henrietta Smith are listed and seem to be next door to their daughter Ida and her husband Joseph Scott.
By the 1920 census, Sylvester has died. Henrietta appears as living with Joseph and Ida. Interestingly, her name is recorded as Henrietta Moe and not as Henrietta Smith. Joseph is said to have a repair shop and Ida is a manager at Met. Life.
In 1855, in memorial 594, relating to the sale of Henry Moe's Beverly lands which was done upon his youngest son, Henry Jr., reaching his majority, Henrietta is yet unmarried, though only by months. She is described as a spinster and living in South Dumfries. Why this might have been when some of her siblings and her mother were in Berlin isn't clear. She had two sisters in Chatham at this point as well. She may have been in the Vrooman household. Nelson and Rachel Vrooman were her uncle and aunt.
