John Smuin and Jane Pursey Honey

John Smuin and Jane Honey

These are my 2nd Great Grandparents.  They were born in Radley, Berkshire, England in 1820 and 1822.  I think they are adorable.

From a local history:
John Smuin came to America in 1870 and settled at Ogden, Utah, where he became a prosperous merchant and where he continued to reside until 1901 when he came to Fremont County, Idaho and located in the thriving little town of Rexburg, where he has since been successfully engaged in the mercantile business as a dealer in groceries, crockery and enameled ware. The enterprise is conducted under the firm name Smuin & Son, and William Smuin, subject of this sketch, is a partner in the business, which is one of substantial order.

John Smuin and his wife are zealous adherents of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, which has a large representation in the Fremont county, and their eleven children, seven sons and four daughters are now living.

John Smuin and Jane Honey were married in Radley, Berkshire, England 14 November, 1842.smuin-john-jane-honey-marriage-1842
