Idalette Ellen Hanks Smith married Sherman S. Smith (memorial #57354883) January 21, 1877 in Anamosa, Jones Co., IA. Their marriage followed the death of Sherman S. Smith's first wife, Margaret Crawford Hoff Smith. Idalette's family lived near the land on which Sherman S. Smith lived. We believe Idalette provided care for Margaret in her final days of illness.

Idalette Ellen Hanks Smith is related to Nancy Hanks Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln's second wife.

We believe Idalette had several miscarriages but only one child lived as a result of this marriage, Sherman Harry Smith (memorial #5729455).

At some point in their marriage, Idalette and Sherman S. Smith moved to Franklin Co., KS and lived out their lives there.
