    Notes 
    • Aaron Alonzo Mather fathered a child out of wedlock in 1878. The mother of the child was Flora Johnson also of Jackson, Union County, Ohio. Her parents were Arthur P. Johnson (stepfather and uncle, her birth father, Frederick having died when Flora was between age 5 - 12) and Mary Johnson.

      Flora and Aaron were not married. Aaron may not have known about the baby until after he was born. Flora lived with her brother, Newton Johnson at the time of the baby's birth. She named him after his birth father, Aaron Alonzo. He was nicknamed "Lonzo" and was registered at school with the last name of Johnson, but later he took the name Mather.
      Alonzo Mather left Ohio in 1905 to go to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, where he was hired to work for the Great Northern Railroad. He married Amelia (Crawford)Waite, a divorcee with a daughter. They had four more daughters, Marion, Mildred (my mother), Frances Jean, and Shirley.

      Alonzo was killed in a tragic accident while working as a breakman on a train in Cle Elum, Washington in 1930. He is buried in a mausoleum in Sumner, Washington. His marker says Aaron Alonzo Mather.

      Flora Johnson never married. She saw her granddaughters when they visited her in Ohio.
