Kirtland Temple
A National Historic Landmark

Lewis Bedamon

Following the death of her husband and birth of David Hyrum, Emma elected to remain in Nauvoo with her family while church leaders and their Latter Day Saint followers scattered throughout the country. Within a few years she found friendship and support in Lewis Bidamon, a local man whom she married on 23 December 1847. Lewis assisted Emma in raising her five children and he remained her companion until the end of her years.
