Anna Maria was born on the Island of Oland just off the south eastern coast of Sweden. Her birthplace of Algustrum is located in central Oland.

She married Peter Nilsson Oman on July 15, 1827, and in the next twenty-one years they were blessed with ten children in the same town. Peter was a mason by trade, and in their early married years , they were considered “well-to-do.”

In 1852, they were baptized as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by missionaries in that area. They were hard working faithful members of the church and id all they could to further the gospel. They did all they could to protect the missionaries from the mobs.

The entire family was active in the Church. Their sons, Anders and Nils served missions in Sweden and their thirteen year old son, Aaron, was appointed as a local missionary in Denmark.

As funds became available, the older children emigrated to Zion. In 1863, Peter, Anna, and the two youngest children left Liverpool on the ship, “B.S. Kimball.” On June 6, 1863, they left Florence, Nebraska in the John F. Sanders Wagon Company to cross the Plains. They arrived in the Salt Lake Valley on September 5, 1864.

They went to Mt. Pleasant to settle. Anna passed away on May 12, 1864 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah at the age of fifty-nine, less than a year after arriving in the Salt Lake Valley.

Anna had done a great deal to further the work of the Lord as she supported her husband and her sons in their priesthood positions after their conversion to the Church. She also did a great deal for the missionaries who were serving in the area.

At one time the family was destitute for food. A knock at the door was answered by Anna Maria. A hand thrust through the door opening and placed five dollars in her hand, and left without being identified. Thus was the testimony given of the Lord's goodness to His children. “As you do unto others, so too, you shall be given.”

Anna had a great devotion to the Church and a deep love for her family.
