CHILDREN OF MABEL JANNETTE SMITH AND JOSEPH OVERSON
(Child # 6 of Eliza J. Haines and Louis Morgan Bryant Smith)

Mabel Jannette Smith6 (Eliza J. Haines5, Mary E. Harris4, Ancil M.3, Zach2, Isaac1) was born August 2, 1878 in Hyrum, Cache County, Utah. She married Joseph Overson, son of Christian Overson and Jensina Christina Larsen, on April 10, 1895 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah. He was born September 18, 1863 in Fillmore, Millard County, Utah. He was a premature baby, weighing only one and one half pounds. It is said that they used his father's wooden shoe for his bed after his birth. They kept him wrapped in cotton, warmed him with lamps, and fed him with a medicine dropper. One story tells of Christian and Sina attending a church social with their tiny baby in his father's overcoat pocket. Eventually he gained weight and was a healthy child. He was 32 years old when he met his future bride. He built her a home in Leamington where they lived the rest of their lives. He died January 15, 1941 in Provo, Utah County, Utah; she followed him in death on November 8, 1961 in the hospital at Nephi, Juab County, Utah. They were buried in the Leamington Cemetery, Leamington, Millard County, Utah.
