Clarissa Smoot is on the US Federal Mortality Census as dying of dropsy of the heart in 1860 and is shown as age43. This seems to be correct as she is Clarissa Hutchison Smoot, the first born of Jacob and Alice Reynolds Hutchison of Wilkes County. Is Asenath mentioned in the census a new wife already??? Does he have a sister or other relative who could be helping with the children? or did he remarry quickly?
