About Mary Ann Fullmer (Price)

It was while in Nashville that John met and fell in love with Mary Ann Price, a daughter of a wealthy planter. Mary Ann had known none of the hardships of life and had her own maid and a private tutor. Her father was very much opposed to her association with John S. and she was forbidden to see him.

Describing their romance to his parents, John S. said, "I always thought I would be better pleased for having a little romance in my courtship.  In this I was fully gratified.  She was prevented from having any association with me for a long time, and when we did have any, it was clandestinely conducted.  She was not permitted to visit a neighbor's house alone, or even go to church without someone to attend her, lest I should intrude and take advantage of the circumstances.  We at length, however, corresponded daily: and when we thought we were about to be discovered, we consummated the business to our liking, and the utter astonishment and surprise of everybody.
On the morning of the 24th of May, 1837, she put on her morning gown as usual and, instead of walking among the flowers in the garden, as usual, she skipped across the street, through an alley, and met me at the place of appointment.  At 9 o'clock, we were at the Parson's house and had the ceremony completed, and wrote a joint note to her mother (her father being at the time in Texas), informing her of what was done, and hoped also that it was well done."
After the marriage, her father did become reconciled to their marriage in that he was friendly toward the newlyweds.  However, he disinherited Mary Ann.  Some years later, after her parent's died and their estate was probated, Mary Ann finally received some settlement, but this was after they had come to Utah.

When her husband was away on a mission

Mary Ann taught school to help with their livelihood while he was away and the 6th Ward records show that they received some help from the Ward storehouse. It was a difficult time for these women and their children. Mary Ann had the added sorrow of losing, Mary Ann Francis who died while John S. was away.
