Since the lunch break here at the UGA Conference is lengthy, I decided to obtain a scanned image of the entry of a third great-grandmother published in Pioneer women of faith and fortitude compiled by the International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers. I first saw this image of Mary Ann a few years ago when visiting the Family History Library. Attempts then to take a copy via digital camera proved less than desirable.
The FHL now has at least two scanners for patron use, though one today is not working properly. I've included the short story below as an example of what one can find in local compiled genealogy books. Most of these facts have been supported by documents from the time period. Obviously I am thrilled to have a picture of this dear lady. Only one person can inherit the original image, and I am thankful the owner share this image with the DUP.
Here are notes from the Family History Library Catalog for this title:
