  • Notes 
    • Mary Anner Armstrong is currently the earliest-born direct ancestor of TNH for whom we have a photograph, albeit an obviously-retouched one.

      Family records say she was born in "Philipstown, New York." Which is currently adjacent to Dutchess county, but in Putnam county. Was it in Dutchess county in 1784?

      The metadata attached to her portrait in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers database at the Harold B. Lee Library at BYU says: "Mary Ann Armstrong Thorn was born 22 Sept 1785 at Poughkeepsie, Dutchess, New York. She married Richard Thorn 6 Sept 1806 at Clinton, Dutchess, New York and was the mother of ten children. They came to Utah 9 Sept 1853 with the Captain John Bigler Company. She died 7 Mar 1856 at Salt Lake City, Utah."
