|Jennifer Brackenbury Boger||RE: Bertha Madison Smith|
Thank you for your inquiry. This particular image of Bertha (who was my first cousin-three-times-removed; i.e., her mother and my great-great-grandmother were sisters) has been widely reproduced, but to the best of my knowledge the original photo is in the possession of the Community of Christ (f/k/a Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) Archives in Independence, Missouri. A copy of handed down to me as part of a volume of family photos. It seems to have been taken in or near Sandwich or Plano, Illinois at about the time of her marriage to Joseph Smith III, which took place when she was 26. JS's memoirs contain a couple of different pictures of her when she was slightly older.
