Ann Smith was born on October 11, 1819, in Peckelton (gravestone)/Little Wigston (Claybrook Parish records), Leichestershire, England, to John Smith and Ann Cook. She was one of six children.
She married Edward Ingram on August 12,1838, at the Parish Church of Nuneaton, Warwickshire. They lived in Cosford, Warwickshire, England, and were the parents of nine children, two girls and seven boys: John (b. 1838), Mary Ann (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), Edward (55), Edward Jr., Charles, and Hyrum sailed on the ship Arkwright, which left Liverpool on May 30, 1866, and arrived in New York City on July 6. Edward found work in Newark and died in a construction accident on October 2, 1866. Ann, Edward, Jr., Charles, and Hyrum traveled to Utah in the John Gillespie Company, which left Benton, Wyoming, on August 24, 1868. Thomas had come out to meet them at the Missouri River. Thomas found work with the railroad when the Company reached Echo Canyon and Ann and the four sons lived there for a time.
Ann arrived in Nephi 1869. Later in life she lived alone in a 2-room adobe house on one acre of land, up until one week of her death. A great-granddaughter wrote, "She was just a little short lady and used to climb on a chair and get candy peppermints out of the cupboard for us. I remember the beautiful braided rugs she used to make."
She died on March 8, 1912, at age 92 in Nephi, Utah, and where there is a very attractive monument to her in Vine Bluff Cemetery. Her death certificate reports cause of death as pulmonary hypostasis. Inscribed on her gravestone is, "Sacred to the Memory of Ann Ingram. Born in Pickelton (sic), Leicestershire, Eng. OCT. 11, 1819 Died MAR. 8, 1912. A precious one from us has gone. She was the sunshine of our home."
