Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Henrietta Moe was born in 1837 at St. George, Ontario.1 She was the daughter of Henry Moe and Teressa M. Coleman.1 She married Sylvester Smith on 24 August 1855.1 She died on 5 April 1920 at Manistique, Michigan.1 She was buried at Lakeview Cemetery, Manistique, Michigan.1 My information for Eddie Smith is from Randall Chinn's family tree. My information on all the children listed is from the 1870 U.S. census, in this case recorded at Otisville, Michigan, where Sylvester is a hotel keeper.
The first three children are recorded as born in Canada, the last twolisted as born in Michigan.
In the 1880 census, John isn't listed. Is he deceased? Husted appearsas being born in 1874. They are in Lapeer for the 1880 census and Sylvester is a farmer.
Of course, Husted is the name of Henrietta's brother. John Wesley also has a son Husted.

2004-04-23 At the Toronto Ref. Library today I found in Births, Deaths, Marriages, from the Christian Messenger 1854-1864. The issue is September 13 1855. By Rev. G. Patten on 24th ult. Sylvester Smith to Henrietta Moe, both of South Dumfries, Brant County.

In the 1900 U.S. census taken at Manistique, Michigan, Sylvester and Henrietta Smith are listed. I can see no family connection living withthem.
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 Beverlylands which was done upon the majority of his heirs, Henrietta is yetunmarried, 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 sister in Chatham at this point as well. She was likely in the Vrooman household. Nelson and Rachel Vrooman were her uncle and aunt.1
