Note: The gravemarker reads 1859 as the birth year. This is inconsistent with other sources. Her obituary says 1853. She was married in 1871 and seems more consistent that she was 18 (born in 1853) rather than 12.

Note

John's obituary lists Anna as a step daughter. Questions abound.

Most likely scenario is that Susana was married before her marriage to John. To this early marriage was Anna and possibly other children. After marrying John she continued to have kids. Probably 3 total of her children died as infants or young children and 6 grew to adulthood. Susana's obituary states she had 6 kids and a census (1900) says she had 9. There is evidence of 3 kids in the US, one being born here (Nicolas).
