I am looking for information concerning John M. Smith (July 15, 1835 to November 18, 1890) and his wife Jane M McFunstead (November 01, 1837 to February 06, 1907). John was born somewhere in England and Jane somewhere in Ireland and both buried in the Purple Cane Cemetery in North Bend. Specifically I'd like to know if the McFunstead surname is correct. That name came from the 1880 North Bend census - an E. McFunstead is listed as the mother-in-law - and in the 1885 census she has been replaced by the McCreight family, whoever they are.
Also, if I could find out who John's parents were I might be able to find out where in England his family came from. I can't trace Jane's ancestry down until I can verify the maiden name.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
