Esther Brown Brown
Birth: Nov. 1, 1832
Michael, Isle of Man
Death: Apr. 21, 1881
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Wife of Joseph Gurnsey Brown 1824-1907

Celestia Ann Brown 1859-1914

Esther Brown was born on the Isle of Man England. She joined the Mormon Church, left her country to come to the United States. She sailed on the ship Horizon and in July of 1856 she was in Iowa awaiting to go West with the pioneers.. She traveled with the Willie Handcart Company walking most of the way from Iowa to Utah. This company met with many deaths and hardships and was stranded by a early snowstorm. Brigham Young sent out several men and wagons to take supplies and help the stranded pioneers.
Among these men was a man named Joseph Gurnsey Brown, who would eventually marry Esther Brown.
She became a prominent resident of Draperville and owned her own milinary shop. She remained in Draper until her death. She is buried in Draper City Cemetery with 3 of her young daughters.

I have conflicting dates on her birth. The pedegree chart as well as the Brown history shows her birth in 1832, but on her headstone it states 1834. So I am not sure as to which is the correct date.

Esther Brown Brown is my Great Grandmother for whom my Aunt Esther was named and subsequently I was named after both of them. I am honored to carry on their name.
