Smith being a common name and Northumberland being a populous place makes this a challenging one to work with. 1780 - 1800 Estimated birth date for Mary parents. Location guess is Northumberland, England. She emigrates from England in 1856(36) arriving in Pennsylvania. I appears they stay in Pennsylvania for awhile. Or at least her daughter stays for awhile. I am not able to find records showing when she comes to Utah. Her daughter immigrates to Utah in 1862. In her daughters history it mentions the following.

The family began preparing for the trip to Utah soon after Baptism. Mother (Mary) and daughters, Mary Sarah and Elizabeth (of 49 Great Cambridge St. Hackney Road, London, England sailed from Liverpool, (notification date 15th November 1855) on the ship Emerald Isle. They arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1856 where the family lived for a number of years. Father (Joseph) and son George were not listed among the passengers but they most likely were working their way over for their passage on the ship.

Things to check.

Check the 1860 Pennsylvania census records.
