About Harriet Clark

Source: Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel

On 11 April 1859, Harriet Smuin with her youngest brother, James Smuin and his wife, Eliza, who had delicate health, left Liverpool, England, bound for America. They sailed on the ship William Tapscot. There were [LDS] 725 saints on this ship under the leadership of Robert F. Neslen. They arrived in New York City, 24 May 1859, and went to Florence, Nebraska, arriving there 25 May 1859. Florence, Nebraska was chosen as the place where they could secure wagons, teams and supplies for crossing the plains.

Harriet Smuin crossed the plains by ox team in the company of Captain Robert F. Neslen, walking most of the way because there was no room for her to ride. Her sister-in-law had to have a bed.

While the company was resting and repairing the wagons, the women did their washings. One of the men in the company started a brush fire and before it could be put out, it has burned all the company's washed clothes. The company arrived in Salt Lake valley 15 September 1859. Harriet lived and worked for a short time at Whipple's home. She was married 24 September 1859, to Michael Clark, and they lived in Salt Lake City during the next few years. They had seven children: Sarah Ann, Jasper , Michael, Esther Hannah , Elizabeth, Hannah and Edward.
