   Notes   Linked to 
1 Abigail's maiden name was actually Losey or Losee. Some records depict the name as Loce or Locey as well.

No definitive records are available for her parents, though some records ascribe her to John Losey II and Hannah Holbard. I've yet to see definitive data making this connection.

 
Losey, Abigail (I24)
 
2 Accepted and generally verifiable children of Alexander Smith and Janet Reid Swan:

Janet Reid Smith (26 January 1832-?) - Janet appears on census records in 1851 at age 20 as a Cotton Weaver (the profession of her father). There is a marriage record for a Janet Reid Smith to John Barrie on 15 July 1869 at High Church, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland. And also a grave marker in Glasgow for Janet Reid Smith Barrie died 26 March 1912. It's likely that these are valid records for this Janet, though further research is needed.

John Smith (6 July 1834-?) - John appears on census records through 1861 with occupations as a Cotton Weaver and then Flesher. He was likely a witness at his brother George's marriage. He signed at his father's death in 1872. Further research is needed to determine additional details.

George Smith (9 April 1836 - 3 May 1871) - Our ancestor. See his record her for much more detail.

Isobel Reid Smith (15 April 1839 - ?) - The only record I have of Isobel is a birth record. She does not appear on census records in 1841 or 1851 or any other year. It's quite likely that if her birth record is correct, that she died at a young age. As with her siblings, additional research is needed. 
Smith, Alexander (I263)
 
3 Additional name spellings:
Michael Earheart
Michael Arehart
Michael T. Earhart

From records and to match the spelling of his children, "Earhart" is most likely the correct spelling.

Note that his grandson, William W. Arehart, changed the spelling, apparently after having a falling out after his father (a source on this story would be wonderful). 
Earhart, Michael (I19)
 
4 After Sarah Lucy (Brummett) Arehart died in 1885 at age 37, Gasner married Mary Francis Arnold later that year. They had two children, Lou Effie Arehart (female, born 15 Dec 1886) and Benjamin Peter Arehart (born 5 Oct 1888). Mary Francis Arehart died in 1888.

On 12 Dec 1890 he married Emily A Cadwell Crafton (born 1849) at Memphis, Scotland, Missouri. Emily's maiden name is likely Emily Cadwell. She had previously married Samuel Crafton in 1877 (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/V2DN-V3Y). They are found together in the 1880 census (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M6ND-CZM) with 3 children - Ella Crafton (age 9), George Crafton (age 8), and Elliott Crafton (age 2). Ella and George would have been born before the marriage with Samuel, so they may not be her children (or perhaps not his children). No records can be found for these children with either Cadwell or Crafton surnames. Samuel was 62 (Emily was 1/2 his age at 31) in 1880. Records show that Samuel died in 1896, but Emily and Gasner were married in 1890.

It is quite likely that Emily is the daughter of Charles and Hester (sp?) Cadwell as indicated in the 1850 census at https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/V5PC-YFC. The dates match perfectly and the location is the same as where both are found later in life, but no other details on this family can be found.

Just over 18 months after the marriage to Emily, on 14 Jun 1892 Gasner married Annie Schnitger at Shelby, Missouri.

If everything above is factual, Annie was Gasner's fourth wife in 7 years.

The 1900 Census (see attached image) shows the following:
- He was still married to Annie. It shows her birth date as Dec 1842 in Indiana and a mother of 6 (4 living).
- The family living in Finley Township, Douglas County, Missouri.
- Gasner with an occupation of "Minister of God".
- Lillian, my ancestor, living there at age 20.
- Lou E. Arehart, age 13, living there.

The 1910 Census (after Gasner died) shows Annie living with her son (Albert S Schnitger) and Albert's wife (ironically, also named Annie - this is how I stumbled on the census record) and children in Union, Marion, Missouri. Annie was 65 at the time. 
Arehart, Gasner G. (I13)
 
5 After the suicide of her husband, Lillian died a few years later in the mental hospital in Blackfoot, Idaho. We were unsure of her death date and all records indicated that it was "About 1913", though this never seemed to coincide with personal accounts and the fact that John F. Smith died in October of that year.

Her recently discovered death certificate (Idaho #010901 found here and here) indicates a death date of 11 Apr 1915.

She was buried adjacent to her husband in the Pineview Cemetery in Marysville, Idaho. See John's record for details on the burial plot and missing headstones. 
Arehart, Lillian Myrtle (I8)
 
6 Also Isobel Ried, Isabel Reid, Isabell Reid. Reid, Isobel (I266)
 
7 Also Jean de La Garrique or Jean De La Garrigue

Jean de La Garrique, who after having served France and seeing his lands decreed, resolved in 1654 to go to the Island of St. Christopher as Captain. By his marriage with Elizabeth Rosignoll 1656, he had a number of descendants in the Island who filled distinguished positions., who after having served France and seeing his lands decreed, resolved in 1654 to go to the Island of St. Christopher as Captain. By his marriage with Elizabeth Rosignoll 1656, he had a number of descendants in the Island who filled distinguished positions.

He was wounded on the Island 1666 at battle of the French against the English, who possessed one half of the Island. 
De La Garrigues, Jean (I247)
 
8 Also recorded as:

Aidah Mariah Kendall
Ada Mariah Kendall
Adah Maria Kendall
Adiah Mariah Kendall
Aidah M. Kendall

... and every combination possible of the above (and several other unique ones).

The majority of records list her as Ada. The 1910 census lists her as Adiah, the 1930 census and her husbands death record lists her as Aidah, but all other known records list her as Ada.

The exact spelling of her first name isn't as certain. In the 1870 census, she is listed as Maria A. Her death record (Idaho #36315) also lists her as Ada Maria. Considering the prevalence of records as such, it is presumed that Ada Maria is the proper spelling. 
Kendall, Ada Maria (I270)
 
9 Also recorded on some histories as Walter Warks or Walter Work. Wark, Walter (I261)
 
10 Also Sarah Losey or Sarah Luce.

Percy Crayon stated in his History of Morris County that Sarah may have been a member of either the Losey or Lyon families that were numerous in the region during the period.

At some point in time "Losey or Lyon" was transcribed as "Losey of Lyon" and as such, this has since been mistakenly passed down as Sarah having been born in Lyon, France.

No details are known of Sarah's actual maiden name or progenitors.

19 David Jones' wife Marinda Alice Stevens died on 8 Aug 1904 at age 35 in Holden, Utah. She left several young children, including Maiben Stevens Jones who was 5 months and Elizabeth Inza Jones (my great grandmother) who was 3 years old.

David then married Marinda's oldest sister Sarah Emaline Stevens Johnson on 25 Oct 1906 in Manti, Sanpete, Utah. Sarah Emaline Johnson had been married to William John Johnson and they had many children. William had died in 1897. Sarah 51 at the time of this second marriage for both her and David. They had no children together. Sarah died in 1908.

The 1910 census shows David alone in Holden, Utah with children Tamson Jones (age 17), Ruby Jones (13), Inza Jones (9), and Maiben Jones (6).

David then married Olive Ann Johnson Stringham on 30 Apr 1917 in the Manti Temple, Manti, Utah. Olive had been previously married to Benjamin Joseph Stringham. They had many children. Olive was in her mid 50's at the time of this (her second) marriage and David's third marriage.

David and Olive moved to Willow Creek, Bingham, Idaho by 1920 where the census shows them there at age 56 and 55, respectively, with David's children Inza E. Jones (age 18) and Maiben S. Jones (15), and with Olive's children Bryant Stringham (18) and Bernice Stringham (16). They lived adjacent to Olive's older son Platt Lyman Stringham and his family. Olive died in 1939 and is buried in Holden, Utah adjacent to her first husband Benjamin.

David died in 7 Nov 1927 at age 63 in Bone, Bonneville, ID and is buried in Holden, Millard, Utah. 
Jones, David (I277)
 
20 Eliza Clements was born in Kirtland, Ohio, the daughter of some of the earliest Mormon church converts (Albert Clements and Ada Winchell Clements). In 1834, at just a few months of age, Eliza's parents went on Zion's Camp, a 2000 mile expedition from Ohio to Missouri. Zion's Camp was led by Joseph Smith and included many other church leaders. Ada Clements is listed as one of only 11 women to make this trip. The children are not listed as participants and were likely left by their parents in Ohio. At some point soon after Zions Camp was disbanded (some say in utter failure), the Clements family and children settled with the saints in Liberty, Clay County, Missouri.

This was a very difficult time for the family and the saints there. In 1836, Eliza's sister Elizabeth was born in Liberty. During this year, they were forced out of Clay County by mobs and settled in Far West, Missouri. On October 27, 1838, the Mormon Extermination Order was signed and the saints were driven from Far West after a short battle. Many died at the hands of the mobs or during the cold, forced march out of Missouri.

Eliza's sister Ada was born in Far West on January 27, 1839. While no details are known, this would have made her probably the last Mormon born in Far West. Nearly all of the saints had left previously. Perhaps mother Ada (same name as her daughter) was allowed to remain due to the pregnancy.

After eviction from their home in Missouri, the family settled in Nauvoo, Illinois. The Clements family lived near the Prophet Joseph Smith in Nauvoo and were no doubt very associated with him and his family. Eliza was baptized in Nauvoo in March 1842. Young Ada was baptized there by the prophet's brother Hyrum. Mother Ada worked for Joseph cleaning and ironing clothes. Several of the children worked for them as well. Some recorded that the Prophet showed them the Egyptian mummies from which the Book of Abraham came as they were stored in the Prophet's closet. Albert and Ada had another son, Nephi in Nauvoo, Illinois, on November 15, 1842.

When the Prophet and his brother Hyrum were killed on June 27, 1844, this no doubt greatly affected the family. The family viewed their bodies as they lay in their caskets in the basement of the Mansion Home in Nauvoo. Eliza's sister Lucy was involved in making their burial clothes.

Eliza, her mother, and many of her siblings witnessed the meeting where Brigham Young took the appearance and voice of Joseph Smith - a witness that he was the new leader of the Saints. This event had great effect on them and their beliefs in their church. Eliza's father Albert was away on business during the martyrdom and this event. Having not witnessed it, and being a good friend to Sidney Rigdon (Sidney had brought them the gospel), Albert was drawn away toward following Sidney. This soon led to a great division in the family, with Ada and her children going to Utah and Albert remaining in Iowa. Read the amazing story of Albert and Eliza here to read of their separation and long overdue coming together.

In 1844, Eliza's brother Paul was killed by a mob in Nauvoo. The exact date and circumstances are unknown.

Sometime before 1846, the family left Nauvoo under mob pressure and settled in Winter Quarters. While the rest of the family stayed there for 5 years before taking the trek to Utah, Eliza was one of the first Mormon pioneers to cross the plains, arriving in September 1847, less than two months after Brigham Young's initial arrival in the Salt Lake Valley. She was part of the Daniel Spencer/Ira Eldredge Company. She was 13 years old at the time of the crossing. There are no records of any other family members coming in that company or being in Utah at the time. It is unknown why she was sent (seemingly) alone at such an age.

The remaining family later joined Eliza in Utah after suffering much along the way. Stories say that her family was offered an enormous wealth by Indians on the plains as payment for Eliza's younger sister Elizabeth. They were, of course, refused, which caused them to try to steal her away. Eliza's niece, Martha Ann Hale, five year old daughter of Lucy Clements Hale, was abducted by Indians on the plains and after a great search and much effort was returned to her family after 5 months of captivity.

Eliza married Levi Newell Kendall in June 1848 in Salt Lake City, less than a year after arriving in Utah (her mother and siblings wouldn't arrive until 1852). She was 14. Levi was 26 years old at the time. See his record for more details.

A few years later, on 29 November 1852, Levi Newell Kendall married Eliza's younger sister Elizabeth Clements. Polygamy was quite common at this time. Elizabeth was 16, and having her heart set on another man, reluctantly, but obediently married her brother-in-law.

As can be expected, having sisters named Eliza and Elizabeth married to the same man would naturally result in great confusion among historians. This confusion is compounded by the fact that they had 23 children between them to Levi Kendall (Eliza had 11 and Elizabeth had probably 12, maybe more). In general, the histories are quite a mess when it comes to this family, though it is clear that Eliza is our ancestor by her and Levi's daughter Ada Maria Kendall.

There was apparently some animosity between the sisters. At one point Levi left Eliza and her children in Mapleton, Utah to settle with Elizabeth in Oxford, Idaho. It is said that he favored the younger of the sisters, but Elizabeth, having been pressured into the marriage never seemed to truly give her heart to him, despite being faithful and rearing at least 12 of his children. At some point Levi returned to Eliza in Mapleton and they remained together until their deaths. After Elizabeth's youngest child turned 13, feeling as if she had done her duty, asked Levi for a divorce, which was granted in 1890.

Levi and Eliza were one of the first settlers of Springville, Utah and Mapleton, Utah. They built a cabin in Mapleton, Utah which remains in the city park to this day (see attached photos). Some histories indicate that Eliza was blind in her older age, something that seems at least partially verified by the photo that was taken of her and her husband at the 1897 Pioneer Jubilee.

Levi and Eliza are buried adjacent to each other in Evergreen Cemetery, Springville, Utah. 
Clements, Eliza Ann (I274)
 
21 Elizabeth's son Finley and daughter Julia Ann Garrigus Knapp both state on the 1880 census that their mother was born in Virginia. Elizabeth's daughter Jane listed her mother's birthplace as Virginia on the 1910 census, but Ohio on the 1900 census.

Considering that there is virtually no evidence of her birth in Ohio, a birth place of Virginia is most likely. This lends further speculation to her parentage being John Spivey and Jane Vinnedge 
Spivey, Elizabeth (I22)
 
22 FamilySearch indicates Nina died before age 8, but there is no death date or details recorded. I've been unable to find a death certificate or notice.

Her father's death notice indicates that he left behind four children, which suggests that Nina died before October 1913.

Update: According to a descendent of her sister Madge, Nina was stillborn. 
Smith, Nina Mae (I12)
 
23 Found on a web forum at http://genforum.genealogy.com/earehart/messages/3.html regarding the name change from Earhart to Arehart:

"My great-great-great grandfather was George Earhart. His son was William Marks Arehart. They had a falling out over George's chosen profession (my understanding is he worked in some kind of government position). William Decided to change the spelling of his last name to Arehart." 
Arehart, William Marks (I15)
 
24 Gasner Arehart alternate names on record:
Gasner G. Airhart
Gasner G. Earhardt
Gasner G. Arehart
Gasner Gargus Arehart
Gasner Garrigus Arehart (Note that Garrigus is his mother's maiden name)
 
Arehart, Gasner G. (I13)
 
25 Gasner fought in the Civil War in the 69th Regiment, Ohio Infantry as a Private. He is shown as enlisting 26 February 1864 at age 21 and mustered out 17 Jul 1865, a few months after the end of the war, at Louisville, KY. Interestingly, the enlistment record shows a birth date of "about 1837", a date that exaggerated his age to 27. Whether this was a clerical mistake or an exaggeration is unknown.

Gasner and Lucy were married in 1863, before his enlistment. They did not have children until after the war.

His enlistment was at the heart of the Civil War. The 69th Regiment of the Union Forces fought some of the most difficult battles of the war that summer, including the Atlanta Campaign which led to the eventual fall of Atlanta and hastened the end of the Civil War. 
Arehart, Gasner G. (I13)
 
26 George Smith married Agnes Wark on 4 July 1862 in Airdrie, Lanark, Scotland. George died in 1871 at age 35. George and Agnes had at least 4 children (all born in Airdie, Lanark, Scotland):

Mary Agnes Smith (1865-1888) - Born 3 December 1865. Married James Barton Stratton, had one child (Agnes Ethel Stratton) on 13 March 1888 which died within a week. Mary Agnes died shortly after on 6 October 1888 in Provo, Utah.

George S Smith (1867-1918) Born 2 December 1867. Married Thora Marie Larsen. Died Dec 5, 1923 in Provo, Utah.

John F. Smith (1869-1913) - See his record on this site.

William Smith (1871-1872) - Born 6 October 1871 (5 months after the death of his father George). Died one year later in November 1872.


The following two children of Agnes were born well after the death of George 3 May 1871. The father of these two sons is unknown at this time.

James Hyrum Smith (1874-1939) - Born 22 December 1874. Never married. Died January 4, 1939 at the Veterans Administration Facility, Provo, Utah - death HERE.

Joseph Walter Smith (1877- 1948) - Born April 1, 1877. Joseph departed on the trip to Utah in 1877 at the age of a few months (the ship manifest shows two months, but the ship sailed in October 1877, making him 5-6 months old if the birth date is accurate). He is shown in the 1880 census with mother Agnes and Lars Rove Jensen in Orderville, Utah. He died 16 Feb 1948 in Twin Falls, Idaho - death certificate at http://abish.byui.edu/specialCollections/famhist/Death/detailForm.cfm?recordID=166524

The death records for both James and Joseph list George Smith as their father, though this is not possible (unless there is another George).

Agnes had been converted to the Mormon religion in 1861 (baptism in the Holytown LDS Branch). No baptismal record is known for George.

Around 1877, Lars Rove Jensen, a Mormon settler in Utah approached church leadership with a sum of money in hopes of buying land for a farm. Instead, he was directed to pay the remaining fare for Agnes and her 5 young children to come to Utah. After their arrival, Lars and Agnes were married on 23 September 1878. Lars, Agnes, the children, and Lars' previous polygamous wife (Elizabeth Ann Freestone) moved to Orderville.

Agnes had two additional daughters with Lars - Agnes Sarah Jensen Peck, born 27 Aug. 1879 in Orderville, Utah, died Mar. 27, 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah; and Jane Elizabeth Jensen Smith born 11 March 1882 and died 11 July 1951.

Wark, Agnes (I259)
 
27 Harold was married to Blanche Kingdon Wright on 8 July 1946 in Beaverhead, Montana. Blanche was born 19 December 1910 in Salt Lake City, Utah to George Albert Kingdon and Mary Mamie J. Thomas Kingdon.

Blanche had previously been married to William Reister Wright on Nov 22, 1930. William Wright and Blanche were divorced before the 1940 census (both Blanches are found in Salt Lake City at her parents in 1940).

They had had a daughter Blanche Louise Wright 24 May 1934 in San Francisco, California. Louise later married William C. Robinson (son of William A. Anderson) on March 25, 1952 in Carson City, NV. Interestingly, their wedding announcement published by Louise's grandparents the Kingdons in SLC on April 26, 1952 indicates that Louise is the daughter of "Mr. and Mrs. Blanche Kingdon Smith of Pocatello, Idaho". This was, however, just 15 days after Harold's marriage to Verna.

Blanche Louise Robinson was living in Salt Lake City with 2 children at the time of her mother's death.

Little is known of Blanche and Harold's marriage, but it did not last and they were later divorced.

Blanche committed suicide by drowning after jumping into a canal at 276 N. Redwood Road in Salt Lake City on August 14, 1957 at the age of 46. Her headstone (indicates last name Smith), death certificate (indicates divorced), and obituary are available at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=78858424 She is buried in the Salt Lake City cemetery.

28 History of Jane Brown (I found this story on Ancestry.com about Jane)

Jane Brown was born in St Michaels, Southampton, Hampshire, England on 9 Aug 1772.

She married John Wild on 29 Oct 1795 in Owslebury, Hampshire, England.

When the Mormon missionaries proselyted in her area of southern England, she accepted the gospel they taught and was the first in her family to be baptized. Her husband had already passed away by this time.

Emigration to America, "the literal gathering of Israel", was a commandment of God given to the British Saints by President Brigham Young. In obedience to this command, Jane Brown, her son Henry Brown Wild and his family, and her daughter Mary Wild Snelgrove left Hampshire, England and landed in America in 1851.

The rigors of the sea voyage and the malarial fevers of the Mississippi River, were too taxing for Jane who was then 76 years old, and she died in Jackson County, Missouri, the site from which the body of the church she had recently joined, had been expelled some 13 years earlier.

Jane Brown Wild was a woman of uncommon faith demonstrated by her courage in leaving her native England to commence upon so long and harsh a journey so late in her life to gather, as God had commanded, with the body of the Saints high in the Rocky Mountains of Utah.

After burying their mother, Henry Brown Wild and his family, and his sister Mary Wild continued their travels. After crossing the plains, they arrived in Salt Lake City in 1852.

This is a submission file of the Lars and Agnes Work Smith house to the National Register of Historic Places. It details the location, history, and current status of their original 1885 home. As near as I can tell, the home still stands in Orem at 87 North 800 West. 
Wark, Agnes (I259)
 
31 I can find no death record or other documentation of death year (1921). He was 15-16 at this time.

His parents had both died previous to this point and I have no indication of where he lived or died.

The history of his sister Madge Marie Smith indicates, "After my parents passed away, us kids were separated. I went with Aunt Rhoda and Uncle George Airhart. One of the boys (Lloyd) went with a family in Sawtooth and was supposed to be adopted. The oldest boy, Lawrence Gasner, was adopted by a family that later divorced. He was sent to an orphanage. He died there from Pneumonia caused from his diabetes." 
Smith, Lawrence Gasner (I10)
 
32 I was quite puzzled by Elizabeth's death being in Sonora, Tuolumne, California, especially after having no other known records for her for the previous several years, and also because there were no other known family members or activities in Sonora at the time.

However, further research shows her son Finley Garrigus living in Sonora just a few years before Elizabeth's death in 1885 (his daughter Lucy Elizabeth Garrigus was born there in 1883). It's very likely that Elizabeth was living with her son at the time of her death.

34 In 2010, while researching Walter Wark, I happened upon an online entry written by Greg McDowell that inquired about Walter and Mary Warks of Scotland as mentioned in James McDowell's will - http://genforum.genealogy.com/scotland/messages/53937.html I tried to contact Greg at that time without success.

Two years later, my father and I received a letter from Greg, a direct descendant of James McDowell. He had found this site and wanted to collaboratively research a possible connection between my Mary McDowell and his James McDowell.

Beyond the will, we really had very little to go on. Mary McDowell had indicated that she was born in Killinchy, Down, Ireland in 1811, but I had no other substantive information that could link the two. Through the modern miracle of DNA testing (we have both tested at Family Tree DNA), we can now confirm that Greg and I are indeed related (4th cousins once removed) and share a common ancestor in James McDowell. This verifies James as Mary's father and also places James at Killinchy, Down, Ireland, thus bringing us to additional records for James' marriage to Elizabeth Groves and his children.

I owe a great deal to my distant cousin Greg for his information, recommendations, and persistence over several years as we've researched and collaborated to establish this valuable connection.

35 In addition to the census records above, she also appears in the 1900 and 1910 censuses as a widow. Both show her in Rutledge, Scotland, Missouri. In 1900 she is 76 and living with a granddaughter L. Nees (it may not be Nees - the writing is very poor). In 1910, she is 86 and living with an Eva Vogt (age 20 from California). She lived to be over 91 years old, outliving many of her 10 children. Garrigus, Jane (I16)
 
36 Jacob Garrigus died at around age 46, leaving Elizabeth with many young children. There were guardianship hearings for the young children in Butler County in 1840 (4 years after Jacob's death). The records of these hearings are where most details about the children come from. It is unclear why guardianship was discussed, but this does suggest that perhaps Elizabeth had died or abandoned them. Elizabeth is unheard of again until her death March 22, 1858 in Sonora, CA. Spivey, Elizabeth (I22)
 
37 James journeyed to Utah in 1868 in the Edward T. Mumford wagon company with his first wife Margaret Robertson Salmon, and three children: Margaret 10, Robert 8, William 5.

Arriving at Omaha, we camped at Fort Benton, awaiting Captain Mumford and Captain Holman, who were to bring the wagons to take us to Utah. Mother walked nearly all the way as father was sick most of the time and had to ride[.] Mother helped to care for many of the sick on the vessel and on the plains. There was much sickness all the way to Zion. Oh! what a joy when Robert Salmon, father's brother[,] met us at the head of Echo Canyon and conveyed us to our new home, a two room log house, across the Weber River, where now the Echo Dam is located. It was now late in September.

38 James McDowell was born around 1793 (based on his grave marker) probably in Scotland or Ireland. There are many presumed birth records, but I know of none that can be verified.

He is the father of my ancestor Mary McDowell born 14 December 1811 in Killinchy, Down, Ireland. There is no known birth record; the birth date is derived from later records.

James married Elizabeth Glover (often mis-transcribed as Groves) 23 Feb 1813 in Killinchy, County Down, Ireland (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FGN3-YXX). This marriage was 14 months after Mary's birth. It is unknown if Elizabeth is Mary's mother.

James had several other children with records in Killinchy (https://familysearch.org/search/records/index#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Amcdowell~%20%2Bbatch_number%3AC70030-1):
- James (05 May 1813 - 2 months after the marriage)
- Margaret (18 Jul 1815)
- Elizabeth (01 Sep 1818)
- John (06 Dec 1822)

It is unknown if Elizabeth is the mother of all of these children. The family, excluding Mary, immigrated to Pennfield, New Brunswick, Canada sometime before 1831. Son James indicated on one census that he immigrated in 1819 (he would have been age 6). One can only speculate why Mary did not go with the rest of the family - perhaps she stayed with her mother.

James married Ann Reid sometime before 1831. Most genealogies indicate this marriage in New Brunswick in November 1822, though this is unlikely if the birth record in Ireland for John is correct. I do not know if Ann is the mother of John or not, though most ascribe him to her. James and Ann had several more children in New Brunswick - William McDowell and Duncan McDowell.

Ann McDowell died in November 1842 at age 45. James died 4 June 1849 at 57 years of age. 
McDowell, James (I279)
 
39 Janet's birth name was probably Janet Reid Swan. Records vary and conflict on her maiden name. It's possible that either Reid or Swan may be a first married name.

The marriage record to Alexander (in 1831, when Janet was probably ~29) and son George's birth record in 1836 show her name as Janet Swan.

Birth records for son John (1834) and Isobel Reid (1839) show her as Janet Reid.

George's marriage record in 1862 indicates his mother's name is Janet Reid Smith (maiden name Swan), but his death record (in 1871, before Janet died) shows it as Janet Swan Smith (maiden name Reid).

Also of note is that her mother-in-law's (Alexander's mother) last name was also Reid.

There are birth records for 22 Janet Reid's and 3 Janet Swan's between 1801 and 1813 in Lanark County, Scotland alone. Without further evidence, her actual name and parents are not likely to be known.

40 John & Lillian's marriage record - http://abish.byui.edu/specialCollections/westernStates/westernStatesRecordDetail.cfm?recordID=13709

Note that her name is listed as "Lillie", instead of "Lillian" and last name spelled "Arehart". Residences listed both as Rexburg. John was 31 and Lillie was 22.

They were married almost 12 years at the time of John's death.

41 John F Smith's death notice (searchable here) indicates his death in October 1913 in Marysville, Idaho. The notice is from St. Anthony Chronicle, St. Anthony, Idaho, 30 Oct 1913, pg 2. No official death certificate can be found.

The text of the notice, posted under "Marysville Items" reads:

John F. Smith of this palce (sic) committed suicide last Monday by drinking laudanum. He moved here last fall from Plano and took up the profession of veterinary surgeon and had a good practice. He wrote a ltter to his mother and other relatives stating that the pain in his stomach was unbearable and assigning this as an excuse for his rash act.

He was owing about $150 on his home here and was afraid he could not meet it, and this seems to have bothered him a great deal, and it is understood that he had threatened to take his own life a good many times during the past six months, in fact so often that his friends thought it only and (sic) idle threat.

He sent an old gentleman down to Ashton to get the drug, representing that it was for a sick horse, and when the poison was delivered to him he drank it, about four ounces, then went and laid down on the bed telling the old gentleman goodbye; his wife was away to a neighbors and nothing was known of it for two hours. When he was found a doctor was sent for but the poison had permiated the entire system; all that was possible was done but he never rallied and died at 2:30 Tuesday morning.

He leaves a wife and four children in very strengent circumstances, but kind neighbors have assisted them and are doing everything in their power for them. His mother and brother-in-law came up from Provo, Utah, to attend the funeral also a brother-in-law came from Idaho Falls and several friends from Plano. The body was interred in the City cemetery Thursday after a short service in the ward meeting house under the supervision of the ward authorities, Arthur Gifford and T.W. Murphy were the speakers. 
Smith, John F. (I7)
 
42 John F. Smith died in October 1913 at the age of 43 by overdosing on Laudanum. My grandfather (Harold West Smith) was 3 at the time.

His wife Lillian apparently went crazy after his death and died less than 2 years later in the mental hospital in Blackfoot, Idaho. They left several young children. See her record for more details.

John Smith was buried in the Pineview Cemetery in Marysville, Idaho. http://files.usgwarchives.org/id/fremont/cemeteries/pineview.txt shows:
Smith, J. F.
Male
Date of Burial:
Burial No. 7
Lot No. 11
Block 2

Lillian was buried adjacent (Burial No. 6) to John with the record being listed as "Smith, Mrs. J. F."

Either the graves were unmarked or the headstones have been removed or lost, because neither is currently found in the cemetery. Rumor says that a flood wiped out part of the cemetery, but I find this unlikely considering the location and can find no record of such a flood. Because of the missing headstones, neither John nor Lillian appear on any modern cemetery listings.

43 Known children of Alexander Smith and Margaret Roger:

05 Apr 1768 - William Smith
12 May 1771 - John Smith
18 Apr 1773 - Alexander Smith
28 Nov 1777 - Alexander Smith
28 May 1775 - James Smith
19 Mar 1781 - Agnes Smith
03 May 1785 - Alexander Smith
19 Aug 1787 - Josiah Smith

Most birth records linked from children at FamilyTree - https://familysearch.org/tree/#view=ancestor&person=LWMQ-5PH

There are birth records for three sons named Alexander to this Alexander Smith and Margaret Roger. FamilyTree records for the multiple Alexanders have over time been erroneously combined into a single record.

Alexander #1 was born 18 April 1773 - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XTF5-6PP

Alexander #2 was born 28 November 1777 - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XTFR-V2G

Alexander #3 was born 03 May 1785 - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XTFR-RRS

It's possible that the first two sons died at an early age and the subsequent son was named the same. One difficulty with this theory is that if the last Alexander was born in 1785, he would have been only 17 when married and when first child Jean was born. Any other details or explanation would be greatly valued. 
Smith, Alexander (I29)
 
44 LDS Church Membership Records:

- January 24, 1842 - "Mary McDowall" baptized in Airdrie Branch. Removed February 1852. Of note is the user of her maiden name. This is certainly after her marriage and the 1841 census record, though all other details seem to be correct. It is also possible that the church record is an update to a previous, yet unknown record that listed her by maiden name.

- July 6, 1851 - "Mary Wark" transfer record from Irvine Branch, Glasgow to Airdrie Branch.

- February, 1861 - Mary Ferguison and John Ferguison baptism in the Holytown Branch. Holytown is 4 miles south of their residence in Airdrie.

- ~1866 - Mary Ferguison, John Ferguison, and Agnes Wark records in Holytown Branch.

45 Letter to Levi Newell Kendal from his mother Lorena Lyman Kendall Howe

(Extracted from https://familysearch.org/photos/stories/1505329)

Copy of letter written by Lorena Lyman Kendall Howe to her son,
Levi Newell Kendall; City of Joseph, Hancock Count y, Illinois.
Bedford, December 6, 1845.
Beloved and worthy child;- We received your kind letter of October 10th, on the first day of December; by the hand of the Elder. The contents filled us with mingled emotions, sorrow, pity, anguish and joy;-
Sorrow, that we must be excluded from your society here; Pity, that you
must suffer so much for Christ's sake and the Gospel; Anguish, that human beings should become so depraved as to desire the extermination of the innocent; and Joy, that you are counted worthy to suffer persecution for Christ's sake and the Gospel. Viewing all these things, we read it over and over again and the sympathetic tear flowed profusely. Your mother, as was natural, seemed the most unreconciled, but, in humble submission to the devine will, she now rejoices that she has one child bound for the kingdom of heaven. We also feel to rejoice that in all your trials you are blessed with health and as you seem determined to mingle your whole future destiny with the persecuted Mormons, we submit, and if it is the will of heaven we will try not to murmur. Go then beloved child and do your Master's will, and our prayers shall attend you. When we contemplate on the great anticipated remove, we are struck with surprise; and a kind of horror seizes upon our frames - 30 thousand exiled pilgrims to leave
their native, natural, and fair purchased possessions, and go, they scarcely know whither, merely to please an exasperated mob, is a stoop we think below the high privilege of God's annointed one! And altho we know that persecution is the dowry of the saints, yet in this case something is unreconcilable.
Yet peace is ever the saints motto. And while they are - traveling with their lives in their hands as a prey, in all probability horror will seize upon the heart of the cruel Persecutor and all your wrongs and privations will roll upon his remorseless conscience, and when it is too late, he will wish to be a Mormon. But we will have the guilty in the hands of the Lord who will judge them righteously, and come directly to our feelings in the family circle. Grandfather and mother are enjoying a good degree of health for people of their age, and their hearts are alive for the kingdom and such is their seal for the cause, that they fain
would mingle with the multitude and partake of the trials and troubles of the christian exile in search of the promised rest. They realize this present mode of existence will soon cease and what is to follow is without end. They, therefore, request an interest in your prayers, that their faith fail not, and that in the celestial kingdom of God they may have a share. Your brothers remain much as they were, jocose and rude. Yet they seem to sympathize with us and you in the parting struggle. They want to see you, and enjoy your society, but cannot believe there is virtue enough in your profession to warrant a separation from their present worldly pleasures and connections, even would it bring them into actual
profession. Your father is still in the opposition, but spurns the conduct of the mob and their associates, and like every reflecting man would be willing that the Mormons should enjoy their rights in peace. The little children are all well and often talk about you and in the anxious moments seem to wonder why you stay away. And now what remains is to realize to you a mother's feelings. Did she not herself believe in the doctrine of Mormonism, her trial would be greater than she could bear. But, as it is altho you are so dear to her, and your society so desireable, yet in view of the shortness of this life, and the eternity of the future, she is willing to resign you into the hands of a more able and faithful Parent, who is able and willing to support you, and comfort you in all your trials and eventually to save you from all your trials and tribulations. Remember her in all situations. Your acquaintances are all in good health about here, except old uncle Rogers, as he was called. He is dead. His last business in life was highly important -- to put down mormonism, but the old gentleman has failed, and he has gone to await his reward. Peace
to his ashes. Aunt Betsy is living with grandfather and mother and they live very agreeable. You no doubt wondered at her anxiety for you and your safety when she wrote to you, but if she had not been a believer in the doctrine any more than she was, and hear as many stories from different sources as she did, we are inclined to believe you would have had fears like hers; first, the whole world's proclamation, secondly, almost every circulated story verified by Wm. Hurlbut; third, the Rigdon apostacy; fourth, the conclusion of the whole investigation and judgment given against you. In this case there is no wonder for her concern. And your written assertion to the contrary does not wipe away the stigma. She believes
you are honest but are delude and led away by those whom she believed, and many others fear, are wicked men. Spiritual-wife-ism, temple dungeons, and drunken, swearing preachers cannot be fellowshipped in this region of the country. Dear child, live to God, and may his blessings attend
you. Remember us in all your trials. Those who pray will pray for you, and those who do not pray openly will give you their best wishes.
Farewell.
P. S. Write as often as possible before you start for the West,
that we may have all the information possible. Brother J. Smith acknowledges
the receipt of your respects and in return sends you his and his
family's best wishes for your health and prosperity. As his mind is rather
fluctuating he wishes you to see his daughter, Abigail, and let her know
that he received her two last epistles, and found us all in good health,
but not prepared to move to the West; we are not able. I shall write her
when my mind is established; at present I have nothing but prayers and
good wishes to send her. Farewell, dear brother, and if we never meet
again in life, may we meet in the resurrection of the just is the prayer
of -- J. Smith.
In the hopes of immortality beyond the grave we subscribe our7
selves your afectionate friends Hiram L. and Lorena Kendal Howe and
Children and Joseph B. and Hannah Lyman and Aunt Betsy.

46 Levi Newell Kendall

(Extracted from https://familysearch.org/photos/stories/1149339)

Mapleton, Utah County, March 25, the recent death March 10, at this place of Elder Levi Newell Kendall, one of the original band of 143 pioneers who entered Salt Lake Valley, July 24, 1847, deserves more than a passing notice, as the deceased spent the greater part of his life in the building and development of this common wealth.

Levi Newell Kendall was born on April 19, 1822, to Levi and Lorena Lyman Kendall, in Lockport, Niagra County, New York. His father died the same day he was born, so he was denied one of his natural guardians. During his early childhood he was kidnaped by an uncle and was not returned to his mother for a number of years. In the meantime his mother married a man named Howe, who had but little sympathy or regard for the puny little fatherless boy. He was then taken by his grand parents for a number of years.

When nearing manhood he returned to his mothers home, soon afterward he heard a ?Mormon? Elder proclaim that ?God? had restored the everlasting Gospel, and he was convinced of its truth. During his investigating he was bitterly opposed and oppressed by his step-father that he had to leave his home or renounce it.

He was baptized in Michigan by Elder D. H. Hulbert in October of 1842, he at once went to Nauvoo, Illinois. He was ordained a seventy in April 1844 at Nauvoo, Illinois under the hands of President Joseph Young Sr., and set apart to filled a mission to Michigan the same year, where he was meeting with fair success when he, in connection with all the other missionaries were called home at the martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph Smith and patriarch Hyrum Smith.

When the Saints prepared to move to the Rock Mountains, he was among the front ranks and so continued until the pioneers were organized, then he was numbered among John Browns Company. On the night of June 5, 1847, on the ?trek? here, he with John Eldredge and Stephen Kelsey were on guard the night a band of 15 Parinee Indians entered the enclosure on the bank of the South Fork River. He was first to discover the Indians and together with Stephen Kelsey, fired over their heads, frightening them away, and so alarming the campers, they came pouring from their wagons with rifle in one had and clothing in the other.

Levi, John Eldredge, and two or three others prevented what might have been a perilous and dangerous stampede in the Black Hills, in the cow herd with jingling bells stampeded the head teams the others following in the same direction and close to a deep ravine, but plying vigorously their whips over the heads of the terrified oxen, they soon compelled them to stop, thus preventing a serious catastrophe.

On that memorable, 24 of July 1847, when the pioneers camped near, where the Knutsford now stands. It was decided to plant wheat at once, and the pioneers had some seed with them. A rush was made for the teams and plows. Levi, John Eldredge and William Carter at the plow were the first to turn the sod, but only for a few rods when the beam of their plow broke.


Levi returned to Winter Quarter with President Brigham Young the fall of 1847 to assist the ?Poor Saints? in bringing them to the valley. After Levi?s arrival back into the valley in 1848 he was adopted by Brigham Young.

At the age of 26 years old Levi married Eliza Clements on 17 June 1848, she being only 14 years old. Eliza walked bare foot to her wedding because she had no shoes. For a wedding dress she wore a simple home spun dress. Levi and Eliza?s first home was a wagon bed where they lived for a number of years. Several of there children were born in this wagon bed home. Levi and Eliza?s children are:
Levi Cyrus born 14 Oct 1849, died 28 May 1916
Lorena Zeruah born 15 Sep 1851, died 19 Sep 1852
Joseph Bradford born 7 Jul 1853
Justus born 31 Mar 1855, died 1 Aug 1855
Ada Maria born 25 Jan 1857, died 1927
Charlotte Elvira born 9 Jul 1859
Albert Nephi born 25 Sep 1861, died Sep 1862
Elias Royal born 14 Jul 1863
Eliza Nancy born 30 Oct 1865, died 1888
David Amos born 2 Sep 1870, died 7 Dec 1937
Betsy Matilda born 18 Dec 1873, died Sep 1874


Four years later Levi married again to Eliza?s sister Elizabeth Clements on the 29 November 1852 in the Endowment House. Elizabeth was 16 years old. These two sister were the daughters of Albert Clements and Ada Winchell Clements from New York. Levi and Elizabeth?s children are:
Lucy Ann born 30 Oct 1853
Sarah Elizabeth born 20 Dec 1855
Eleanor Dosca born 14 Jan 1858
Roxey Jane born 21 Dec 1859
Electa Victoria born 24 Jul 1862
Reuben Newel born 27 Aug 1864
Margaret Louisa born 26 Aug 1866, died 11 Aug 1887
Samuel Darias born 27 Dec 1869
Charles Clarence born 25 Mar 1871
Julius Nathaniel born 16 Nov 1872, died 30 Nov 1838
Bertha Pearl born 7 Mar 1875
Owen Elizah born 8 Jul 1877

In 1856 Levi and his family moved to Springville, Utah County, Utah, where he assisted in the construction of canyon roads and irrigation canals. In 1861 he again went to the Mission River with Captain John R. Murdock to bring ?Poor Saints? to the valley. During the time of the Indian troubles he freely contributed of his means and time in the defense of the lives and home of the settlers. He also assisted in the Echo Canyon Campaign, at the insistence of Governor Brigham Young. In the hardships incident to those early times he always bore his share of the burden.

Marriage became unbearable for Eliza, in 1873 when she was expecting her eleventh baby she left her family and went to Oxford, Idaho where some of her family was at and stayed there. She then met and married John Crossley and had two mor children, George Emanuel Crossley born 18 Sep 1875 and William Henry Crossley born 16 Oct 1878. At the birth of George she had no one to help her and was obliged to get up from bed to do a washing. Not only was she required to carry and heat the water but also to scrub the clothes by hand. As a result of this she developed pneumonia which caused her to lose her eye sight. John could not cope this the situation and admitted to the Blackfoot Hospital in 1887. When she was released from the hospital on the 23 July 1897 She went to Mapleton, Utah and lived with Levi until he died.

Marriage also became unbearable for Elizabeth also. About 1880 Levi and Elizabeth separated and Elizabeth received a temple divorce from Levi. On the advice from the bishop Levi gave Elizabeth all the property. Levi moved to Mapleton, Utah.

On March 10, 1903 Levi Newel Kendall died at Mapleton, Utah. His strong testimony of the Divine calling of the Prophet Joseph Smith, and his successors were always an inspiration to the Saints of his acquaintance and he was valiant in declaring it. 
Kendall, Levi Newell (I273)
 
47 Levi Newell Kendall embraced the gospel in Redford, Michigan where he was baptized by Elder D. H. Hulbert in October 1842 at age 20. Histories say that his step-father was so bitterly opposed to his involvement with the Mormons that he ordered his step-son to leave or renounce the gospel. Levi left at once for Nauvoo. Shortly thereafter he was ordained a priest and set apart to work on the building of the Nauvoo Temple.

In 1844, Levi was ordained a seventy by President Joseph Young, Sr. He was sent on a mission to Michigan with 15 other elders to preach the gospel and build up the churches there. In 1844, he was serving as a leader of one of the l4 branches of the church there.

After the martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph Smith, Levi Kendall returned to Nauvoo. He received his endowments in the Nauvoo Temple on 6 February 1846. He was one of the first to remove from Nauvoo and head west. He was in Brigham Young's original pioneer company. He was a member of Orson Pratt's advance company that entered the Salt Lake Valley on 22 July 1847 at age 25. With Levi as driver and John Eldredge at the plow, they were the first to turn the sod in their refuge in the Valley. However, they had plowed only a short distance when their plow broke in the hardened soil.

Some histories say that Levi was adopted by Brigham Young in the Salt Lake Valley (at the time, these spiritual adoptions were quite common for young men with no local parentage). Levi practiced polygamy, marrying sisters Eliza Ann Clements (married June 1848) and Elizabeth Clements (married 29 November 1852). Marrying sisters named Eliza and Elizabeth has caused much confusion and mayhem in the histories. Levi had at least 23 children from these two wives.

Histories suggest that Levi favored the younger Elizabeth, but she, having been forced into the marriage never seemed fully in love with him, and there was much animosity and trouble between them. When polygamy was outlawed and the men were forced to choose one wife, he went with Elizabeth to Oxford, Idaho to settle. She, however, asked for a divorce after their youngest child turned 13 (around 1890), so Levi went back to his first wife Eliza in Mapleton, Utah. They remained together the rest of their lives and are buried adjacent to each other in Evergreen Cemetery in Springville, Utah.

He died March 10, 1903. His gravestone (attached) indicates he was a Sergeant of the 1st Regiment, 2nd Brigade of the Utah Territorial Militia and a veteran of the Indian Wars. 
Kendall, Levi Newell (I273)
 
48 Levi Newell Kendall was born in Lockport, Niagra County, New York on 19 April 1822, the same day his father died. Lockport was an important, bustling city at the time as the Erie Canal was being constructed. No details are known of the circumstances of his father's death, though it is presumed by many that he died in a canal construction accident. Kendall, Levi Newell (I273)
 
49 Lillian has history records with the following spellings of her name:
Lillian Myrtle Arehart
Lillian Myrtle Airhart
Lillian Myrtle Earhardt
Lillie Myrtle Arehart
Lilly Myrtle Arehart

"Arehart" was used by Lillian on her wedding certificate and also by her parents on multiple censuses. "Lillian" is found on her death certificate and other records. Lillian's marriage certificate did list her first name as "Lillie" (http://abish.byui.edu/specialCollections/westernStates/westernStatesRecordDetail.cfm?recordID=13709) though this was likely her nickname rather than given name. 
Arehart, Lillian Myrtle (I8)
 
50 Lloyd is found on the 1940 census as a sheepherder in Fremont County, Idaho. Status shows single living with Elwood Foster.

He later served a deputy sheriff for two years, then was elected as sheriff for Fremont County in 1948 for one term.
