      Matilda Carrie Gaylord and Morris Smith had the following children:

      4  i.  Erastus F.3 Smith (#1929) was born in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 17 JUL 1834.  Erastus died 24 DEC 1848 in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 14.  His body was interred DEC 1848 in Wood Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.

      5  ii.  Sanford Gaylord Smith (#1930) was born in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 13 DEC 1838.  His body was interred in Prospect Cemetery, Mansfield, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.  He married four times.  He married Sally A. Smith 24 NOV 1860.  (Sally A. Smith is #9478.)  Sally was born 16 APR 1841 in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.  Sally was the daughter of George F. Smith and Keturah Rebecca Hodges.  Sally died 11 JUN 1871 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 30.  Her body was interred JUN 1871 in Wood Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.   He married Emma Keturah Smith 27 DEC 1870.  (Emma Keturah Smith is #9481.)  Emma was born 22 MAY 1848 in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.  Emma was the daughter of George F. Smith and Keturah Rebecca Hodges.  Emma died 9 SEP 1892 at age 44.  He married Mary Elizabeth Smith BEF 1896 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.  (Mary Elizabeth Smith is #9531.)  Mate was born 7 OCT 1854 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.  Mate was the daughter of Alexander Cumstock Smith and Mary Abbott Bradford.  She married Frank C. Avery 23 SEP 1875 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.   Marriage mentioned in diary of Sadie Monroe. Also Mansfield Advertiser 6th Oct 1875: Married Frank C. Avery & Miss Mary E Smith of Sullivan Sept 23rd by Rev. S. L. Conde at home of A.C. Smith in Sullivan. This marriage apparently ended in divorce.
    Mate died 11 APR 1896 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 41.  Her body was interred APR 1896 in Card Cemetery, Sylvania, Bradford County, Pennsylvania.   Mary is buried with her parents and brother. The tombstone reads Mary E. Avery wife of S. G. Smith Oct. 7, 1854 - Apr. 11, 1896. Harding Genealogy says she is Mary Avery Smith

   Perhaps Mary's 1875 marriage was to Frank Avery then she married Sanford after that? Something is confusing. Sadie Monro's diary says she marries in 1875 and calls her Mate Avery after that.  Apparently Sanford outlived her if he in fact married again after 1898. Something is confusing about dates. If Frank did not die until 1901, and Mate died before that and married Sanford, then there must have been a divorce. Mate died two hours after surgery for a tumor in her Sullivan home.
    He married Joanna Unknown (Chapman) AFT 1898.  (Joanna Unknown (Chapman) is #1931.)  It appears that all three daughters died in their early twenties , probably of childbirth. Need better clarification on death dates of wives and remarriage dates, some overlap, needs confirmation.
