About Alice Longstroth


"...Also of interest is Richards's account of his fourth plural marriage, this one performed after Joseph Smith's death. Richards and his new wife, twenty-one-year-old Alice Longstroth (born January 28, 1824, died November 21, 1909)—sister to Sarah and Nanny—mutually covenanted a plural union between themselves without the aid of an outside officiator: "At 10.

Richards, Diary, December 23, 1845. Willard and Alice were not resealed in the Nauvoo Temple, and Alice subsequently wed Moses Whittaker (1820-52) and later George D. Watt (1824-1909)...
