Clarissa was a tailoress according to the 1880 census.

She crossed the plains with her parents in 1847 when she was 17 years old.

Her father, Josiah Miller, was the Captain of Ten in the Joseph B. Noble Fifty in the Jedediah M. Grant Company. Clarissa's soon to be husband, Israel Hoyt (age 19), was included in Josiah Miller's group. Perhaps Israel and Clarissa met while they were living in Nauvoo, Illinois, (Or Winter Quarters, Nebraska) or they may have met and fallen in love while they were crossing the plains.

Israel Hoyt and Clarissa Amanda Miller married 9 Mar 1848, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Israel Hoyt wrote, "Arrived in Salt Lake October 4, 1847. Married Clarissa A. Miller November 25, 1848. Was called on to the Muddy Mission (in Nevada) at Conference in 1868. In 1870, the Muddy Settlement was all broken up. March 1871 I moved to Long Valley and was appointed to preside at Mount Carmel (Utah)."

Israel & Clarissa were the parents of ten children. Four of their children died young, but the rest lived and raised large families.
