From the life of Almira Mack Scobey Covey: Almira had a twin brother, Almon. She had the privilege of being educated in finishing schools in the New England area.
Almira was a first cousin of the prophet Joseph Smith. She was converted by her aunt, Lucy Mack Smith, when she went to visit. She became one of the very first members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was baptized by David Whitmer and confirmed by Prophet Joseph Smith.
She went with her aunt to Michigan to preach to relatives and was probably the first lady missionary in the Church. She was among the first missionaries in Michigan. She and her aunt converted her mother, Temperance Bond. Almira’s father, Stephen Andrew Mack, passed away in 1826.
