About Theresa Gee (Bowley)

\n
\n
\n

Theresa Bowley, born 7 October 1829, was the ninth of ten children born to John Bowley and Polly Reed Bowley of Maine. She married Lysander Gee in 1846 at Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois, and their family traveled to the Salt Lake Valley as a pioneers with the George A. Smith Company of 1849. They settled in Tooele, Utah where she became the mother of eleven children.

\n

Theresa Bowley Gee took the Utah State prize for being the most beautiful woman. Her carriage was tall and stately; her features were deep and prominent - penetrating to the eye. Her hair was black and heavy; and hung in natural waves below her hips. She had large, brown impressive eyes; and her reverential attitude was typical of the sturdy pioneer stock that characterizes the pioneer woman. Her sister, Sarah, was a gifted dramatic artist, having worked in this field for many years in Salt Lake City and San Francisco. Theresa fell down the stairs in her daughter's Provo home and broke her neck at the age of 72, and is buried in Tooele City Cemetery.
