[Polygamy] Desdemona Fullmer (Age 32): ...According to the Nauvoo 4th Ward records, in the spring of 1842, Desdemona was living in Joseph Smiths home. She probably knew Emily and Eliza Partridge and Elvira Cowles who were also living there at the time. Some time before the spring of 1843, Desdemona moved out of the Smith home.
Desdemona married Joseph Smith in July of 1843. As Joseph continued to secretly accumulate wives, his first wife, Emma, struggled with polygamy. Perhaps Desdemona experienced, or maybe only feared, the anguish of Emma discovering her and Josephs relationship. She recalls the resultant anxiety, In the rise of poligamy i was warned in a dream Amy [Emma] Smith was going to poisen me. Desdemona was not poisoned and remained Josephs wife until he was killed in June of 1844. In 1846, before leaving for Utah, Desdemona had her sealing to Joseph re-performed in the Nauvoo temple....
