EditJoseph KeltingEditElizabeth AnnMartineternity1844Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois, USA (UVA)Bergera, "Earliest Mormon Polygamists" at 12: Kelting's use of "a short time" in the first affidavit suggests that he married polygamously prior to Smith's death. As Kelting received both his wife, Elizabeth, and Minerva O. Woods through the veil in the Nauvoo Temple when all three received their endowments on December 24, 1845, and all were sealed less than a month later on January 20, 1846, I speculate that Kelting may have married Woods sometime before the end of June 1844.
