About Eliza Ann Price

ELIZA ANN PRICE, was born in 1833, the daughter of John Price and Sarah Mary Johnson or Mary Jane Jauncey. Eliza's mother had died when Eliza was an infant and she was raised by her Aunt in London. She had light brown hair and blue eyes. She was a small woman, weighing only about 120 pounds and standing five feet tall. Her brother was Sir Arthur Price who served in the King’s Service. Her grandmother was a distant relative of Sir Walter Scott.

Eliza was Anglican but heard the Mormon missionary Isaac Chauncey Price from Utah preaching about 1853 at a church near her home. Eliza and five other girls had gone to hear him speak when they met. She joined the LDS Church and came to America in a company of other Saints led by Elder Haight. (According to his record, the party left on June 20, 1853.)

Eliza and Isaac were married on October 10, 1853 in Salt Lake City, Utah. According to their daughter’s memoirs, Eliza did not know that Isaac had other wives until she was on aboard the ship for the United States. When she discovered Isaac had other wives, she refused to marry him. But she was too embarrassed to tell her family back in England and so she remained with Isaac and lived her life in the Utah desert. She never quite forgave him for his deception.
