Description: Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) writes that Voznesenskii reported smoke from Makushin in 1843 and 1844. Beginning with Coats (1950), other compilers list the date for this eruption as being 1845. All previous compilers (except Doroshin (1870) - he lists 1845 as the eruption date) list 1843 or 1844 as eruption dates. Perhaps there was a second episode of smoking at Makushin in 1845, or perhaps there is a typographical error in Doroshin or Coats. Jacob and Hauksson (1983) and Arce (1983) include both 1844 and 1845 as eruptions.
