About Jesse Nathaniel Smith, Jr

There is another photo showing Jesse Nathaniel Smith, Jr., under the Media Tab above which was found on Family That photo depicts Emma Seraphine West Smith with some of her children, and those of her sister Margaret, who was a plural wife of Emma's husband, Jesse Nathaniel Smith, Sr. Jesse was a cousin of Joseph Smith, Jr., The Propet of the Mormon Church. Margaret passed away in 1864 while their husband, Jesse, was on an LDS mission in Denmark. Emma Seraphine West Smith raised Margaret's two children with Jesse until they were adults, as if they were her own.

Shown in the photograph are: In the back row, left to right, were Joseph West Smith (Margaret's son), John Walter Smith, Silas Derryfield Smith, and Jesse Nathaniel Smith, Jr. In the center is Emma, and in the front row, left to right are Eliza Snow Smith Rogers, Samuel Francis, and Adelaide Margaret Fish (Margaret's daughter).

This photo was probably taken after 1909 when Emma's first-born daughter, Emma Seraphine Smith Decker, had passed away from breast cancer. Sadly, the following year, in 1910, Emma Seraphine West Smith herself also passed away from breast cancer. In this photo she looks quite thin and frail and was probably already suffering from the disease for at least year or more.
