(1841), Thomas (1844), Joseph (1846), Edward (1849), Elizabeth (1852),
George (1854), Charles (1857), and Hyrum (1861).
Ann and Edward were converted to the LDS/Mormon church (baptized May 28,
1848) at Cosford. Ann and Edward decided to emigrate to Utah, sending
several of the children first to work and send money for the later voyage of
the rest of the family. First to go were John (age 24) and his wife Harriett
Hall, Mary (21), Thomas (18), Joseph (16), and George (8) on the ship John J
Boyd, which left Liverpool on April 23, 1862. Four years later, Ann (48),

accident on October 2, 1866 (age 51). He is buried in historic Fairmount
Cemetery in Newark, New Jersey (location noted many years ago as "Adult Row
No. 11 and the 4th grave. Number 1023.").
Ann, Edward, Jr., Charles, and Hyrum traveled to Utah in the John Gillespie
Company in 1868. Ann never remarried and died in 1912, at age 92, in Nephi,
Remnants of Edward's diary exist in which he records the fates of his
parents and siblings, his religious conversion, the journey on the
