Daughter of Bernajah and Delilah Smith. She later married Nephi Tarbet. Family tradition states that her family traveled in the William B. Preston Company in 1863. As of yet, no documentation has been found to confirm that, however the 1870 census indicates that her sister, Emma, was born in New Jersey in early 1862, and her father, Bernajah, is documented in the Logan 1st ward on 19 December 1863 for a rebaptism, so it is certain that the family at least traveled in 1862 or 1863. Her birth record indicates that her given name was Elizabeth Ann, but all other records after that list her name as "Ann" or "Deborah Ann."
