Levira Clark Smith

Proof that she came in 1851 comes from consequential evidence. She appears on the 1850 Iowa census (enumerated on 18 Oct. 1850) and was rebaptized in Salt Lake on 26 Oct. 1851. This is evidence that she could have only traveled to Utah in 1851. She may have traveled in the Harry Walton/Garden Grove company with the Samuel West family, with whom she was living in Iowa at the time of the 1850 census.
