About Susan Caroline Welker

From Ronald Ackroyd Smith:

Susan Caroline Stevenson smoked a corncob pipe until her death. She made the trek to Nauvoo where her mother Polly Pugh died from giving birth. Her father took off to Michigan where he died. Susan Caroline, however, crossed the plains with her aunt Annie Pugh Welker and later became the second wife of James Welker, who was Annie Pugh's husband.


Sadly, four of her children died from diptheria in 1881, including 14 year old Susan, 11 year old Francis Marion, and her two youngest twin daughters, Catherine Almira and Caroline Alvira, who were only 4 years old.
