Jennifer, I didn't finish my reply before the e-mail got yanked away and sent out! Sorry!
Larona's siblings were Rosina A. (b. 1847, m. John S.F. Seavey); Sidney E. (b. 1852, m. 1st Georgie H. Hurd, 2nd Abby D. Libby, 3rd Charlesetta Tucker); Henry Wilson (b. 1856, m. Margaret E. Phalen in CT); and George L. (b. 1860, m. Levina Starkey in MA).
I can account for all the family in 1870 except Larona. MaryEllen, on this list, checked the NH vital records archives for me and located no marriage or death record for Larona, Laura, or any similar name that fit the time frame.
I'm thinking she could have moved to Maine or Massachusetts (all her siblings did that), but I haven't found records there, either, though I haven't checked thoroughly. I've tried every spelling I can think of in the 1880 Census, too, and got a few leads, but they all led nowhere.
At the NH Families website a couple of days ago, I located my husband's g-grandfather, I think, Geo. W. JOHNSON, who m. Lydia Ann ??? and had a daughter, Abigail L.
It occurred to me that perhaps Larona used her middle name (which I don't know)! That's what I'm trying to check now.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for checking this, Jennifer. Yes, this is the Abbie L. Tuttle in the 1880 in Strafford.
I'm trying to see if this "Abbie L." could be someone I've been looking for for several years.
Larona A. Johnson, b. 29 May 1848, was the 2nd child of George W. and Lydia Ann (TUFTS) JOHNSON. In the 1850 and 1860 census, Rochester NH, she was listed as "Larona A. JOHNSON." In guardianship records probated in 1866, after her father died in the Civil War, she was named "Laura A. JOHNSON." In a TUTTLE-JOHNSON Family genealogy written by Guy Scoby Rix, she was called "Lavonia."
