Susan Demaris Pulley was born to Carlos D Pulley and Sarah Ellen Carpenter. The Pulleys were pioneers in Missouri, having traveled there from Kentucky. She was the granddaughter of Lorenzo Dow Pulley and Demaris Cruse.

Susan married James K Smiley on December 1, 1881 in Cooper County. The wedding was memorable due to a fox hunt that interrupted the ceremony, and was mentioned in the Tipton Times on Dec 13,1881.

James and Susan had 4 children, Grover, Delah, Walter and Kate. In 1900 the family is listed as living in Lawrence County, MO but by 1910 they had divorced and Susan is listed in the 1910 census in Whitman County, WA. as the wife of Charles Sinclair.

Kate married prior to 1917 and eventually settled in Oakland , California. She later moved to the Los Angeles area. Grover married and eventually settled in Pasadena, California.

Susan was visiting Grover's family when she passed away. It is not known at this time what her correct marital status was at the time of her death. Her death certificate and cemetery records list her as Susan Smiley.
