In 1867, Eliza married Jack Merrill and they had a baby girl
July 7, 1868, whom they named Edith. They were later divorced.
She came with her parents, the Jackson Smiths, (Jackson Smith's
mother was a cousin to the Prophet Joseph Smith) to Midway (Utah)
and stayed two years and then moved to Scipio (Utah).
Three years later she married James T. (Thomas) Ivie in Scipio.
He frieghted to Pinoche, Nevada. He was born December 27, 1850,
in the old fort at Provo. In 1887 James T. and Eliza moved to
Daniels Canyon near by where Acorn Inn is now located. They had
four children and Edith now. Jim Tom, as he was called, would
go into the Bear River contry and haul lumber and timber to make
a living for his family. They lived in the canyon for years and
then moved to Daniel to land west of where her sister Rachel
Orgill and Mark lived. They sold fruit from the orchard of apples
and plums they planted and had butter and eggs to sell. Eliza
and her girls picked hops in the fall of the year to sell to
Mark Jeffs for 15 cents a pound.
She knit all their stockings and sewed all their clothes by hand
until she got a sewing machine.
Their children were: Elizabeth, Lyda, Louise, Don C., Grace,
Walter, and Blanch.
