Notes

Julia Ann Johnson's age seems impossible for a marriage in 1886. Nevertheless, the records seem clear on this point. Her age on the marriage record is given as 12, although she was only 10. All other data about her agrees with this reconstruction. Her daughter was born when she was 14, which seems quite young.
