Biographical Summary

Edward and Ann Ingram joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (baptized 28 May 1848) at Cosford, Shropshire, England. Ann and Edward decided to emigrate to Utah, sending several of the children first to work and send money for the later voyage of the rest of the family. First to go were John (age 24) and his wife Harriett Hall, Mary (21), Thomas (18), Joseph (16), and George (8) on the ship John J. Boyd, which left Liverpool on 23 April 1862. Four years later, Ann (48), Edward (51), Edward Jr., Charles, and Hyrum sailed on the ship Arkwright, which left Liverpool on 30 May 1866, and arrived in New York City on 6 July 1866. Edward found work as a laborer in Newark and died in a construction accident on 2 October 1866 (age 51). He is buried in historic Fairmount Cemetery in Newark, New Jersey (location noted many years ago as "Adult Row No. 11 and the 4th grave. Number 1023.").

Ann, Edward, Jr., Charles, and Hyrum traveled to Utah in the John Gillespie Company in 1868. Ann never remarried and died in 1912, at age 92, in Nephi, Utah.
