Dianah was born at "Churchdown", a hamlet near Gloucester, daughter of Sarah Oakey and Robert Sr. Harris. She married Thomas Bloxham 15 August 1831 at Saint Mary De Lode Church, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England. She immigrated with her husband, their six children and her brother, sisters & families.
Dianah was fragile in health after camping at various settlements between Nauvoo, Illinois and Council Bluffs, Iowa with LDS immigrants seeking shelter before moving west to the Salt Lake Valley.
Some reports were that she died at Kanesville Settlement which was on the Iowa side of the Missouri River in Pottawattamie County. Since it was all Pottawattamie Co. at that time and she died between the deaths of her nephews, who are confirmed to be buried here at Nebraska's Winter Quarters Pioneer Cemetery, this researcher (a gg grandniece) concludes Dianah is in one of the unidentified graves near her nephews. There is no stone or record of the location.
