Her stone indicates she was aged 90 years upon her death though census record seem to indicate she was born in 1811 or 1813. She was the 7th of eight children of Ephraim and Esther Tibbetts Leighton and other genealogical records show her name as Anna but the gravestone clearly reads "Ann".

From the Leighton Genealogy: Anna first married Francis [Frank] Conant of Peru, ME on 29 May 1836 in Parkman, ME. He died Byron, ME ca. 1853.
