Jane Parratt Latham

Her birth has been variously recorded with different dates, but a temple sealing record giving a date of 1790 may be the most accurate. This confirms her niece Eliza's accounting of Jane's age as 76 when they traveled from England. Eliza mentioned that people in England expressed concern that she would travel at her age ("people said she was crazy to attempt such a journey at her time of life").
