Birth: Jul. 5, 1822
Kent, England
Death: Jul. 10, 1909
Heber City
Wasatch County
Utah, USA

Elizabeth White Blackley was baptized into the LDS Church 5 Jan. 1850 by Jacob Gates. The ice had to be broken on the water for baptism. It was just a few months before her first child was born. In 1866 she arrived in Heber with two children, Thomas and Emma. Adolphus had died on the way. The father and older boys came later when they had earned enough money for the journey.

When Elizabeth first came to Wasatch County she lived at the Davis ranch at Hailstone [now under Jordanelle Reservoir]. She had been a dear friend of Mrs. Davis in England.

She was a tailor by trade and made many clothes for men. She also bound the tops of shoes and put the lining in them for the shoemakers. She owned a mandolin and she could play it and sing beautifully. She was also noted for ther English puddings and pies. She died 10 July 1909 at Heber City.
