Some of Joseph’s deepest friendships ended over his relationships with other women. Oliver Cowdery and Sidney Rigdon come to mind. The DNA evidence does weaken the case against him, but I think there is a fair amount of evidence that *something* was going on even if we have no proof in the form of children.
JJ, have you any opinion on the alleged miscarriage by Eliza Snow, purportedly after some sort of attack by Emma?
I believe that Eliza Snow was one that he did have sex with – that he fell out of love with Emma and in love with her. Eliza was pregnant with Joseph’s child and when Emma caught them in a warm embrace she kicked her down the stairs and she lost the child.
One can imagine how he felt when he knew it was his child that was lost.
