      ---- From Living Johnson

 Lilja Einarson married Sigurjon "Jon" Johnson

Daughter: Lilja, she married Sigurjon "Jon" Jonsson (from Dvergasteinn in east Seydisfjordur) in Ballard, Washington; they lived in Vancouver. From 1946-1948 Lil spent many months on the farm in Manitoba with her brother, Goodie, and her mother, Soffia, who was in declining health. After her mother died in the fall of 1948, she went back to Vancouver, BC. She was dearly loved by Goodie's family.

[This is where the genealogy becomes inaccurate according to the papers from Emily Enns. At some point between Iceland and the birth of my grandfather, Einar Johnson, the last name of Lilja and Sigurjon changes from 'Jonsson' to 'Johnson'. My grandfather's birth certificate ... states he was born as Einar John Johnson]

Lilja Einarson died on Oct 15, 1965 (79 years old) in North Vancouver (BC reg #1965-09-012949) under the name of "Lillie Johnson". Sigurjon Jonsson also died in North Vancouver on May 4, 1945, age 66, (BC Reg 1945-09-662934) under the name "John Johnson"....
