About Mary Ann Adams

Biographical Summary:

"...She was born around 1828 in Tennessee (according to census records, although the well meaning but often wrong Pioneer Women of Faith and Fortitude entry for her lists her birthplace as Ohio). She was quite a bit younger than her husband; the 1850 census lists him as 42 and she as 19 (which makes me extremely eager to learn more about their story). Although Pioneer Women lists her as dying on 26 December 1884, the 1880 census lists Elijah Abel as a widower, and so it seems that she died previous to 1880 (I think the DUP source has her date somewhat confused with Elijah’s death date)..."



Mary Ann Able died 27 Nov 1877 in Ward 13, Salt Lake City, UT. She was born 24 Dec 1829 in Nashville and married to Elijah Able.
