  • Notes 
    • [Adapted by Alaric Faulkner from reminiscences of Lizzie Tait Gallaher, Notes of Stella Fox Beam]

      Adam Johnson, Marian's son, was brought up by his grandmother in Scotland, Elizabeth Austin Moffat.

      Adam later came to Newfoundland and lived there all the rest of his life. Lizzie apparently met him when he visited in Tuna Valley [PA on border with NY] with a daughter.
