170 years ago today - Aug 28, 1843

William Clayton (Joseph Smith's personal secretary) records in his Journal: "President Joseph met Ms Wdth at my house." "Ms Wdth" was sixteen-year-old Flora Ann Woodworth, daughter of Lucien Woodworth the architect of the Nauvoo house hotel. She had become Joseph's plural wife in the spring of 1843. She is mentioned in Clayton's journal more often than any of Joseph's other plural wives.
