175 years ago today - Feb 2, 1846

Zina Diantha Huntington Jacobs Smith, pregnant with the second son of Henry Jacobs, is resealed by proxy to the murdered Joseph Smith and in the same session is "sealed for time" to Brigham Young. Her legal husband, Henry B. Jacobs, stands by as an official witness to both ceremonies. After the ceremony she and her children live with Young and Zina bears him a daughter. Jacobs, years later, writes to her of his sadness over losing his wife and children.
