Mary Ann Broomhead Wheelock

Mary Ann crossed the Atlantic on the ship Ellen Maria with her father (William Broomhead) in 1852. Two of her sisters and her mother (Cathrine Robbins Broomhead) had sailed in 1849 and were in Pottawattamie County, Iowa by the 1850 census. It is certain that Mary Ann and her mother Catherine Robins Broomhead traveled in this pioneer company. The rest of the family may have been with them but, at present, documentary evidence is lacking; so we have placed the others on the unknown company list. Additional research is needed to clarify the situation.
