Family & MarriageEdit

2nd Marriage: Samuel Miles Edit

It looks like the Prudence separated from her first husband as early as 1815.

After the death of Sarah Simonds in 1824 Rutland Co, VT, Samuel married Prudence Marks (1795-1852). This family in the early 1830s converted to the new Mormon religion and in 1834 named their new son for a famous early mormon missionary, Orson Whitley Pratt (1811-1881). Prudence had a brother, William Marks (1792-1872), who was later the first president of the LDS Nauvoo Stake. Although, Pres Marks later joined the RLDS Church in Missouri, Prudence took her children and followed the main body of Saints out west to Utah where she died.
