Ann Long was the daughter of John Long and Hannah Shaw. She married Charles Woodhouse, 06 Oct 1829, Bawtry, Yorkshire, England. Their children were: Sarah Woodhouse, Charles Chambers Woodhouse, Amelia Woodhouse, Norman Woodhouse, Mary Ellen Woodhouse, John Woodhouse, Joel Silverwood Woodhouse, and Ann Woodhouse. After Charles Woodhouse died in 1851, she married Levi Savage, 18 Feb 1855, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah, and later married Chandler Holbrook, 3 Dec 1859, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah.

Ann Long was born 6 October 1807, Mexborough, Yorkshire, England. She died 25 April 1887 in Beaver City, Utah. Her father, John Long, was born about 1750 near Wath, Mexborough, Yorkshire, England, and he died in 1837 while still living there. Her mother, Hannah Shaw Long, was born in 1755, Mexborough, Yorkshire, England. Hannah married John Long on 27 January 1788 at Bolton upon Dearne, Yorkshire, England. Hannah died 3 February 1838, Mexborough, Yorkshire, England.

Ann Long married Charles Woodhouse, 6 October 1829, White Cliff, Lancaster, Yorkshire, England. Their children were all born while they lived at Adwick Lee Street, Yorkshire, England.

John Woodhouse's journal tells about his mother Ann Long Woodhouse. She was about 42 years old with seven living children at home and the youngest was about two years old when John, the oldest child, first learned about the Gospel. "He and his mother were members of the Methodist Church. In fact at the time he first heard the gospel he had been selected and was under agreement to go to South Africa with returning Methodist Missionaries. When the gospel was first preached he was ready for it."

John left home in August of 1849 in search of work in Bawdry, Yorkshire. "Two weeks after the gospel was first explained to him by his landlady, he joined the Church." John wrote "the landlady seeing me reading the Bible commenced a conversation." Two weeks after his baptism, 15 May 1849, he was ordained a Priest on 1 June 1849. The family joined the Church. Ann aided her son John in finding work in the town of Rotheram, near Sheffield. He managed to save some towards the family emigration. John describes Ann's family experience, "Although our family had never been able to more than live, wages being low, and work scarce, yet we all found we could do something towards that end. It surprised us to see how our way seemed to open before us.

There were nine in our family, yet New Years day, 1851, found us willing to take the risk, and ready to start on our journey from our home, yet so close had been our calculations, and the measurement of Providence to us, that after we had paid our fare in Liverpool and bought the necessaries for the voyage, we had but three dollars and six cents left in the family and no calculations beyond our prospective landing place. The sale of our furniture and effects turned out so well that we could not help but acknowledge God's Providence in it.

An affectionate farewell meeting with the Saints, closed our last evening at home. A number of our old neighbors accompanied us to the end of the village, who there bid us an affectionate and tearful farewell. Our families, grandfather and fathers had resided in the village about 80 years, and myself was the only one who had ever been 100 miles away from home."

Leaving from Liverpool January 6, 1851, on the ship "Ellen", they arrived in New Orleans on March 14, 1851, after nine weeks on the ocean. Two weeks later they moved up the river to St. Louis. More than a year was spent in St. Louis where they accumulated means with which to finance their trip to Zion. During the stay in St. Louis a "my brother Charles had a severe sickness and his living through it was a marvel. We lost our youngest brother, Norman, and my father was accidentally drowned over in Illinois where he was at work in 1851." This left Ann a young widow with a family to get to Utah.

After a three month trip beginning at the Mississippi River they landed in Salt Lake on September 10, 1852. They traveled with the James J. Jeppson Company.

John recorded, "After our arrival in Salt Lake City we and our partner divided the teams, each taking a yoke of oxen. The cows we had owned from the beginning. As we could not divide the wagon, we sold it to a friend of our partner, he paying us in flour which supplied us thru the coming winter. Salt Lake City was just commenced. The people having moved out of the old Fort on to the city lots."

Ann Long Woodhouse died at Beaver City, Utah, 25 April 1887. Her son John, his wife Emma and family were living in the Beaver City area at that time.

Her grave stone inscription reads—"Sacred to the Memory of ANN LONG, born Oct 6, 1897, Adwick Lee Street, Mexborough, Yorkshire, England, Died Apr 26, 1887 at Beaver, Utah, Beloved wife of Charles Woodhouse, who is buried at St. Louis, Missouri, Their Children, John, Charles Chambers, Amelia, Ann, Norma, Mary Ellen."
