Presendia Huntington was born on September 7, 1810, in Watertown, New York. In 1827, she married Norman Buell. Her first introduction to the church was through sister Zina in 1835, and both she and Norman joined the following year. In 1838, the couple moved to Missouri where Norman became distanced from the church. In 1841, Presendia was married to Joseph Smith but continued to live with Norman. After Joseph Smith’s passing in 1844, Presendia married Heber C. Kimball and continued to live with her first husband, Norman, until May 1846. Presendia relocated with Saints to Utah and died in 1892.
