    Notes 
    • Lillian has history records with the following spellings of her name:
      Lillian Myrtle Arehart
      Lillian Myrtle Airhart
      Lillian Myrtle Earhardt
      Lillie Myrtle Arehart
      Lilly Myrtle Arehart

      "Arehart" was used by Lillian on her wedding certificate and also by her parents on multiple censuses. "Lillian" is found on her death certificate and other records. Lillian's marriage certificate did list her first name as "Lillie" (http://abish.byui.edu/specialCollections/westernStates/westernStatesRecordDetail.cfm?recordID=13709) though this was likely her nickname rather than given name.
    • After the suicide of her husband, Lillian died a few years later in the mental hospital in Blackfoot, Idaho. We were unsure of her death date and all records indicated that it was "About 1913", though this never seemed to coincide with personal accounts and the fact that John F. Smith died in October of that year.

      Her recently discovered death certificate (Idaho #010901 found here and here) indicates a death date of 11 Apr 1915.

      She was buried adjacent to her husband in the Pineview Cemetery in Marysville, Idaho. See John's record for details on the burial plot and missing headstones.
