Clarissa Lyman was born in Lebanon, Grafton, New Hampshire on 27 June 1790. She was the daughter of Richard Lyman and Philomela Loomis. She married John Smith in 1815. They lived for a time in Zarahemla, Iowa - across the river from Nauvoo, Illinois. She kept the prophet Joseph Smith in her care from time to time. She was known to be a heavy woman.. If I can find the story about that I will post it. She died 14 Feb 1854 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah.
