Looking for information on Charles A. SMITH, b. abt. 1855 in Sweden under the name of CHRISTIANSSON or CHRISTENSEN. He immigrated to the states in 1869. On Feb. 21, 1875, he married Agnes Jane DIXON, and at that time was listed as residing in McKeesport. In Oct. 1876, he filed a Declaration of Intention to naturalize in Clay Co., IN, but there is no further information on his naturalization. He was back in PA no later than 1881, when his daughter, Mary Ann was born, either in McKeesport or Dubois. Other children include Henry and Sarah, and probably more. The only other thing I know about this man is that he was a coal miner, and was killed in a mining accident which also permanently disfigured his son Henry, leaving him with a large lump on his forehead.
