Birth: 1838
Tennessee, USA
Death: unknown
Washington County
Missouri, USA

Elvira (my paternal great-great grandmother) was a daughter of Hugh and Ann Smith and was born about 1838 in Tennessee (possibly Jackson County). She had 6 known siblings: Nancy (b. circa 1830), Isam (b. circa 1836), Permelia (b. circa 1841), Bird (b. circa 1843), Mary E. (b. circa 1845), and Visa (b. circa 1849).

Elvira married Harmon Alcorn on June 7, 1856 in DeKalb Co., TN and they moved to Washington Co., MO before the birth of my paternal great-grandfather, Lafayette, on July 31, 1858.

Elvira and Harmon were among the first settlers to co-found the Emmaus Missionary Baptist Church in Courtois, Washington Co., MO on February 11, 1861. A photo of the church is shown on this memorial and Elvira and Harmon are buried in the cemetery on the church grounds.
