    Sophia May 'Sophie' (Johnson) Page
    Sophia May "Sophie" (Johnson) Page
    Sophie Johnson was the second oldest child of Samuel Edmond and Hannah Marie (Honson) Johnson to reach maturity. She was about three years younger than her older sister, Ella, which, for the time period infers that one or more of the Johnson children who died in infancy or early childhood might have been born between them. Sophie married Henry "Walter" Page between 1892/93 in Burlington, Iowa. They had a son who died at about age 10, Ray "Walter" Page, and three daughters, Edna May Shields, Bessie Nienhaus, and Maria L. (Page/Richardson) Neufner.
