Ann Mariah Broomhead

Ann Mariah crossed the Atlantic with her mother (Catherine Robbins Broomhead) and her sister Jane (a.k.a Ellen Jane) on the ship Emblem in 1849. By the time of the 1850 federal census they were in Pottawattamie County, Iowa. Ann's father (William Broomhead) and a married sister (Mary Ann Broomhead Wheelock) arrived in 1852. Mrs. Wheelock and her mother then crossed the plains in the Allen Weeks Company of that year. Ann, her sister Ellen Jane and their father traveled to Salt Lake City this same year, but the name of the pioneer company with which they traveled is unknown. Additional research is needed.
