    Emily died before 1898, when Jason married his second wife, LavoniaReed.  Emily's four children are enumerated with Jason and Lavonia inthe 1900 census.

    In the 1910 census, Jason's wife's name is Amanda, which was a name ofEmily Christian.  The census reports that this is Jason's secondmarriage.  This conflicts with the idea that Emily Christian was hisfirst wife and Lavonia was the second.  This and some otherdiscrepancies seems to support the idea that Emily Christian andAmanda Christian are two different persons.

    The record of Jason and Emily's marriage in 1880 matches the ages ofchildren reported int eh 1900 census, when Livonia is Jason's wife.Family genealogies and other information indicates that Amandy orMandy in later censuses is Amanda Emily Christian.  The gravestone forAmandy E Forsyth matches this full name, but no dates of birth ordeath are given on the stone.
