Adelaide Fowles Smith

She is the wife of Job and daughter of Ann Sheffield Fowles in this company.There is much confusion concerning Adelaide's date of birth. We are using the date calculated from her obituary, 6 Sep. 1830, which says that at the time of her death she was "aged 47 years, 2 months and 6 days." The Utah State History Cemeteries and Burials Database shows her birth date as 6 September 1831. The inscription on her gravestone lists her birth as 8 September 1830, but the marker is fairly new, so may be incorrect. FamilySearch and other sources list her birth as 8 September 1831 or in 1832.
