Hi Linda,

From the info you have given I am assuming you have a copy of the marriage record for Maud and John.

Since there are no surnames given for the mothers of Maud and John, I looked for birth records. I had no luck with Maud so looked for a marriage for
a William Smith to an Emma in Prince Edward Co.

There is a marriage for a William Shuble Smith to Emma Cronk Dec. 7, 1873
his parents John and Hannah Smith
hers Jacob and Mary Cronk
both William and Emma born Sophiasburg

and in births there are children for them
Charles Eslie born 1880 and Maggie May born 1882 and Emma Pearl born 1886, all in Sophiasburg, Prince Edward Co.
and a Not named Smith child born 1875 (male) to William Smith and Evaline Cronk

so, since I could not find a birth for Maud, I looked for her in 1881 census to see the names of her siblings.

William S., age 33, labourer, born ON

Emma, age 32, born ON

Nellie, age 11, born ON

William, age 7, born ON

Maud, age 4, born ON

Charles L., age 1, born ON

*** the census image is awful so I just went by the indexed entries with no relationships shown

William S., age 43, farm labor

Emma, age 42, wife

William Allen, age 17, son

Clara M., age 14, daughter

Maggie M., age 8, daughter

Charles E., age 10, son

Emma P., age 5, daughter

Sarah C., age 4, daughter

George E., age 1, son

all born ON

so the names of the children I found in births match with names in this family with Maud so it looks like her mother was Emma Clonk
It also seems Maud was either Maud Clara or Clara Maud

BUT since William and Emma married in 1873 whose child is Nellie, age 11, in 1881 census
I found William in 1871 and she is not with him
I looked for any Nellie born 1870, living in Sophiasburg and found one

Nellie DELONG age 8 months , born August
She is with the Delong family and right above Nellie is an Emeline, age 22, widow
so I wonder if Emma was married before her marriage to William? BUT in her marriage to William she is shown as spinster so that does not seem to make sense

If I find more I'll post for you

Carolyn L
