About Mary Wild

Mary Tyson Slater Wild was born August 8,1811* at Blackburn, Lancashire, England. Her parents were Matthew Tyson and Ann Marsden. Her Father died at a young age and Mary's mother married Richard Ramsbottom. On Feb. 8,1828 Mary married James Slater.They were married at Blackburn in Saint Paul's Cathedral. James and Mary left England in 1841. They lived in Fall River, Mass. Her Mother Ann and brother James were already living in Fall River. After joining the LDS Church they decided to go with the Saints to Utah. James died of cholera on the plains May 18, 1854 near Fort Levenworth, Kansas(Salt Creek). Mary was pregnant with their tenth child(one had died in England) when James died. This baby was born and died three weeks after James. Mary became the polygamist wife of John Wild. Mary died in Salt Lake City May 10, 1865. She was buried in the pauper section of the SLC Cemetery without a headstone. In 2010 several of Mary's descendants donated enough money to place a headstone for Mary and James in the Salt Lake Cemetery. This was only fitting for this couple who sacrificed so much for us.

  • Bessie Godfrey (greatgranddaughter) geneology sheet says her birth date was 1805. LDS Church geneology website says 1811. SLC cemetery records say 1808. In his journal her son Albert has her birth date as July 11, 1809
