Bromsgrove District
Worcestershire, England
Death: Feb. 4, 1881

Utah County

Born in the hamlet of Barrow, Elizabeth was a daughter of Elizabeth Tranton and Joseph Sheen II.

She came to America with converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is recorded that she married a man named John Morriss in England; he may have died there, or at Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois, as there is no other record of him. However, Elizabeth was sealed in eternal marriage to Morriss 27 March 1857 in the Salt Lake City LDS Endowment House.

Elizabeth had married widower, Thomas Sr. Bloxham, after the death (winter 1847) of his first wife, Dianah (Diana) Harris at Winter Quarters, Nebraska. Diana is buried at Winter Quarters Pioneer Cemetery, Florence (Omaha), Douglas, Nebraska.

Elizabeth had known the Bloxhams in England and was fifteen years older than Thomas. She married Thomas about 1849 at Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie, Iowa. She was a good mother for his children.

They were on the 1852 Iowa Census and the first documents which place them in Utah was in 1856; they may have traveled with an unidentified company of LDS Church members.

After living in Utah until her death, Thomas Sr. moved to Idaho to be with his & Diana's children. He died at at Cambridge & is buried in the Cambridge Cemetery, Downey, Bannock, Idaho.
