Caron was born May 4, 1830, at [Mosco,] Marion county, Alabama, the daughter of John Holladay Sr. and Catherine Beasley Higgins.
When she was fourteen years of age she was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She came on the westward trek with her parents, brothers and sisters being then in her seventeenth year. It is claimed that she rode most of the way on horseback.
While the Mississippi company was stationed at Fort Pueblo, Caron became acquainted with Thomas Bingham, a private in Company B of the Mormon Battalion. Two years after her arrival in Utah she was married to him on September 6, 1849, and soon after the young couple moved to Ogden, where they established their first home.
In March 1851, they were called to go with a company of Saints to help establish the settlement of San Bernardino, California where they remained until the spring of 1855, returning to their former home in Ogden.
In the spring of 1856 her husband was called on a mission to the Salmon River Indians where he served two years and during this time she was left with the responsibility of caring for their three children. Her family was with those who went south during the Johnston army episode.
In the spring of 1862 the Bingham family helped to establish Huntsville in Ogden Canyon and, in the fall of 1877, moved to Ashley Valley, locating first on the Green River; then, in the spring of 1878, they moved to Dry Fork (Mountain Dell), north of Vernal, where they resided for several years.
In the fall of 1884 they moved to Mill Ward now Maeser Ward. Her husband died December 31, 1889. Through the years she remained a faithful Latter-day Saint and for many years was a Relief Society teacher. She was the mother of ten children all of whom lived in Ashley Valley the greater part of their lives.
After the death of her husband she made her home with her daughters, Mary Hall Stringham and Phoebe C. Hyslop. She passed away at the home of the latter January 18, 1915.
