  • Notes 
    • Catherine's last name is spelled Hameson in the marital index.

      Catherine is buried next to her brother, John Harmison; and his two daughters, Nancy and Mary Harmison. Catherine's gravestone gives a date of death of 1856; however, evidence is that her husband, Samuel, married a Nancy Barton on August 13, 18 52 in St. Joseph, Indiana so its possible the date of death is wrong.

      Catherine's husband, Samuel Smith, went to Kansas with his second wife in 1870. There were five teams and wagons. Sam's, his son, Martin, John Robinson, Bill Harmison and one other. Later they moved back to Grinnell, Iowa and many stayed ther e. Samuel Smith moved on to South Dakota.
