180 years ago today - Feb 8, 1843

An unsigned document in the Joseph F. Smith's 1869-1870 Affidavit Books specifies this date for the sealing of Joseph Smith to Sylvia Session. Several additional documents support a sealing date after the excommunication of Sylvia's legal husband, Windsor Lyon, which occurred on November 19, 1842.
