CHILDREN OF ELIZA JANE HAINES AND LOUIS MORGAN BRYANT SMITH
(Child #2 of Mary Emeline Harris and Claiborne Louis Haines)

Eliza Jane Haines5 (Mary E. Harris4, Ancil M.3, Zach2, Isaac1) was born August 14, 1851 in Springville, Sangamon County, Illinois, and died April 7, 1935 in Mesa, Maricopa County, Arizona. The family moved to Decatur, Macon County, Illinois shortly after she was born. She married Louis Morgan Bryant Smith, son of Ephraim Henry Smith and Rebecca Sinclair, in Decatur on January 1, 1867. He was born April 4, 1845 in Paris, Monroe County, Missouri. He was about sixteen years of age when the Civil War started, and his father was afraid he would join the service and fight in the war, so he sent him to California with a company of gold seekers. He helped drive the cattle and also helped with the cooking as they traveled west. Three years later on September 15, 1864, he enrolled as a private in Company C, Fourth Regiment of Infantry, California Volunteers, at Sacramento.

He served the entire time of his active service in California. They were ordered to keep the Indians under control as the South had stirred them up to fight against the North. After serving for seventeen months, the war ended. He was discharged on February 19, 1866 at Union Barracks, California. He returned home by sailing down the Pacific to the Isthmus of Panama. He crossed the Isthmus in a pack train, then sailed up the Atlantic to New York. From there he crossed the country to Missouri where some of his people still lived. Later, he went to Illinois where he met and married Eliza Jane Haines.

Louis started working for the Union Pacific Railroad either shortly before or after they were married on January 1, 1867 at Decatur, Macon County, Illinois. They were building the rails westward to meet the crew who were building from the west coast eastward. His job ended on May 10, 1869 at Promontory Point near Ogden, Weber County, Utah. Before returning home, he traveled through Cache County, Utah. He liked the country and the people, but he was anxious to get home to his wife who was expecting a baby late that year. Once home, he found employment in Moselle, Franklin County, Missouri, working in the roller mills making pig iron. Later, they moved to Schuyler, Colfax County, Nebraska, where he homesteaded land. After three years of being besieged by grasshoppers, they decided to go to Utah and settle in Cache County.

He left in the fall of 1876 to locate some property and prepare a home for the family. When he returned, the whole family moved to Utah bringing all their farm animals and equipment on the train. They lived at Hyrum, Utah for about five years, later they lived at a place they called East Canyon near Paradise, Utah for about six years. This is where they joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Shortly after this, they moved to Idaho and homesteaded land near the new towns of Marysville and Ashton. Later they lived for a time at Leamington, Millard County, Utah, then in Park City, Stillwater County, Montana, before moving to Houston, Harris County, Texas, where they celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

Louis died at Houston on April 24, 1917. Eliza claimed they moved sixty times in their fifty years together. She died April 7, 1935 in Mesa, Maricopa County, Arizona.
