    Notes 
    • Marr: listed in the Nauvoo Rest.
      Illinois Marriage Records 1790-1860: listed as Pleasant Euel and Elizabeth Smith
      2nd wife, Elizabeth Clapper Smith
      Ref: Forney's Five Family Records, author, Charles William Forney, page 35,
      states, "After the death of her Husband, [Jacob Smith] she married Pleasant Ewell."


      Best guess is that Pleasant married Mary, after Elizabeth Clapper Smith left Council Bluffs. Vera Tillman, in her book, "How Deep My Roots," Page 17, stated that her ancestors, left Council Bluffs, in Aug, 1846 and settled the town, Plum Hollow, now known as Thurman, Iowa. This group of woman, who's husbands inlisted in the Morman Battalion, left a month after their husbands.

      One could assume that Elizabeth left with that group of women, as she was a resident there with her children. See "Forney's Five Family Records" book, page 34. Son, William F. Smith, states that he and his mother left Plum Hollow in Feb. 1852.

    Married  Abt 1846  of, Pottawattamie, Iowa, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Notes 
    • Marr: Their family is listed in the 1850 Fed Census of same County
      Probably Pleasant married Mary, after Elizabeth Clapper Smith left Council Bluffs.
      Vera Tillman, in her book, "How Deep My Roots," Page 17, stated that her ancestors, left Council Bluffs, in Aug, 1846 and settled the town, Plum Hollow, now known as Thurman, Iowa. This group of woman, who's husbands inlisted in the Morman Battalion, left a month after their husbands. Elizabeth left with that group of women, as she was a resident there with her children. See "Forney's Five Family Records" book, page 34. Son, William F. Smith, states that he and his mother left Plum Hollow in Feb. 1852.
      The timing lines up with the birth of daughter, Martha, born 2 Sept 1847, just a year later.
