  • Notes 
    • From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996.

      Death date also noted as 25 Oct 1925 may be burial date.

      At about ten years of age came to Americas with her family settling in New York for about seven years. Her father was counselor and secretary of the Branch.
      Went to Salt Lake with her sister Emma and worked for Goerge Careless (composer of L.D.S. hymns) for a year and then went on to Tooele. Her father built a home at 334 S. First W., next door to a widower, John Adams. Eventhough he was 26 years her senior, it was love at first sight.
