Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1838
Tennessee, USA
Death: Dec., 1889
Washington County
Missouri, USA

Elvira (my paternal great-great grandmother) was a daughter of Hugh and Ann Smith and was born about 1838 in TN (either Smith or Jackson County). She had 6 known siblings: Nancy (b. circa 1830), Isam (b. circa 1836), Permelia (b. circa 1841), brother Byrd (b. 1844), 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.

Elvira's obituary in the January 2, 1890 issue of the Iron County Missouri Register stated:

"Mrs. Harmon Alcorn died about the time of my last writing. Her remains were interred in the cemetery at Emmaus Church."
