About Jesse Nathaniel Smith, Jr

The above photo was shown on Family and depicts Emma Seraphine West Smith with some of her children, and those of her sister Margaret who died in 1864. The are pictured in the back row, left to right as Joseph West Smith (Margaret's son), John Walter Smith, Silas Derryfield Smith, Jesse Nathaniel Smith, Jr. In the center is Emma, and in the front row, left to right is Eliza Snow Smith Rogers, Samuel F., and Adelaide Margaret (Margaret's daughter). Both Emma Seraphine West and Margaret Fletcher West (sisters) were married to Jesee Nathaniel Smith, the cousin of the Prophet, Joseph Smith, Jr. This photo was probably taken after about 1909 when Emma's first daughter, Emma Seraphine Smith Decker, had passed away from breast cancer. But Emma Seraphine Smith Decker's mother, Emma Seraphine West Smith, also passed away from breast cancer in 1910, just a year after her daughter. And in this photo she looks quite thin and frail and was probably already suffering from breast cancer.
