Viola Jane Johnson1

Female
b. 21 March 1870, d. 1 July 1928


Family Thomas Nathan Shirar b. 18 February 1860, d. 11 January 1935
Marriage* 29 March 1898  Principal=Thomas Nathan Shirar1,3,2 

Note*   Viola is noted in the 1910 census as being married previously.

Thomas and Viola are enumerated twice in 1920. They may have been visiting Thomas's brother David in California or helping him with some construction. This was on January 7th. On the 28th they were again enumerated on their farm in Kansas.

The census record for David in California clearly identifies Thomas as his brother and the age is the same as the later record in Kansas. David's parent's nativity is different and Viola's age is slightly different as is her middle initial and parents nativity.
