1857 Page 97 Birth Record, Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey for Johanna Evernham, daughter of Edmund Evernham and Mary E. Evernham, born 2 March 1857. born at Saint Benedict Catholic, Newark, Essex, New Jersey.
Did Johanna Evernham marry Samuel P. Mosher in Michigan in 1872?
since there were 3 children, and the 1900 census says 2 are still living and Genevieve died in 1881, then Johanna was likely married and living in 1900 and since she isn't with her family in the 1880 census, she may have been married prior to 1880. A possible connection arises in my book The Everingham family of Michigan, where a random unknown woman appears in Michigan marriage records - Johanna Evingham claiming to be age 16, married Samuel P. Mosher, age 22, in July of 1872 at Brookfield, Huron County, MI.. although this Johanna would have been age 15 at the time of that marriage and certainly could have thought she was 16 or lied to sound a year older. In the 1880 Census of Grant, Huron, MI, Samuel Mosher is 34 and Johanna claims to be 21. (unlikely that she was 13 when she married so this same Johanna being married at age 15 sounds more probable) At the time of the marriage in 1872 she claims to have been born in Canada which could mean this is a different Johanna, but it could also mean that she was intentionally being deceptive or just really didn't know where she and her parents were born, due to her young age.
