Married Sylvester H. Dakin on May 21, 1854. [From a letter from Elmina Moon to Owen Lindley, May 1854: "Silvester Dakin and Ann Hadley at last married on first day quarterly meeting in the 5th mo. so I guess Lueza will not be pestered with him any more. It was a slide off match with-out mamma's consent."]
They had nine children together, all of whom survive.
Husband Sylvester died May 24, 1877 in a terrible accident at his sawmill, when his foot became entangled in the belt; he was 46 years old.
Buried in Dakin family plot, Mooresville Cemetery.
