A little more information. Oscar C. Smith's first wife was Tui Gaono (? Fa'amoe) born in Lelepa, Savaii. They had 4 children, George (b. Sept. 12, 1854), Sarah (born July 26, 1856), William (born June 22, 1858), Maria Cecelia (Molaea)(born August 14, 1860). Oscar's second wife was Paulina Sagita (d. 3.11.1897) daughter of Linauvai Sefania and Fa'ailo of Asau, Savaii. Their children: Camilla Mary Emma (born July 21, 1863-d. Paengaroa, NZ, Sept. 1955), Oscar, Jr (b. June 27, 1867, d. August 7, 1914), Orlando, (b. May 25, 1872), Joe/Sio (?Joseph), B. ?, died 1918 in the influenza epidemic). All children born in Safotu. Any corrections or amplifications welcomed (dates of deaths for example). Also, any updates on Oscar C. Smith's parents or what he was doing in Samoa(jumped ship from an American Whaling vessel seems a good guess).
