About Mary Ann Wickens

Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel 1847–1868 Willard Richards Company (1848) Age at departure: 46

Mary Ann (Wheeler) (Luce) Wickens (1801-1879). She converted to Mormonism in 1838 during Wilford Woodruff's mission to the Fox Islands, and subsequently moved with her husband and children to Nauvoo, Illinois. Her name appears as a member in the minutes of the Relief Society between 1842 and 1844 (Newell). She received her Patriarchal Blessing on 15 February 1845 at Nauvoo.

She went to Utah with her family in 1848. She was living in the household of her husband Stephen at the 1850 Census, but later separated from him. At the time of the 1860 census she was living with her son Martin in the 13th Ward. Her husband Stephen was living with his polygamous wife Caroline in the 10th Ward. She was in the household of her son Wilford Luce in 1870.

She was recorded as Mary on the 1851 and 1860 censuses, but seems to have been called Nancy.

Her granddaughter Nan Leonard recorded some events of her 70th birthday (1871), including a visit by Brigham Young.

She died in the 11th Ward, Salt Lake City, Utah. Her death is recorded under the name Mary S. Wicken. Many researchers have missed her second marriage to James B. Wicken on 6 September 1875 at Salt Lake. Her identity is proved by the death record itself, which says she was born 30 August 1801 at Harpswell.
