|Notes: Muriel Irene Smith was born 9 Jun 1886 in Picton, Prince Edward County, Ontario.
She was the daughter of William Charles Smith* and Sarah E. Church. The family
immigrated to the United States about 1888, and moved to Alhambra, Los Angeles,
California, about 1892, when she was 6 years old. Her parents divorced, and
her mother married William M. Hall about 1894.|
In the 1900 U.S. census, Muriel was living with her mother and stepfather, William M. Hall. Muriel was identified by her step-father's last name Hall. *In 1938 her natural father, William C. Smith provided an afadavit of delayed registration for her birth. Her marriage record identifies her father as William Smith, but her death record gives her maiden name as Hall.
| Muriel became a naturalized citizen in 1909. On Christmas Eve 1909, Muriel married
Frank Thomas Olson in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California. The ceremony was performed
by the Rev. Charles Edward Locke, pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal Church.|
