Mary Ann Medler England

Most biographies and family histories about the Daniel England family incorrectly state that they traveled in the Martin handcart company from Iowa City to Florence. This is not supported by the evidence which includes their mention in Joseph Lewis's reminiscence of them being in the Willie company and their travel on the ship Thornton. Mary and her family dropped out of the Willie company in Florence. She continued on to Utah in 1860 in the Brigham H. Young Freight Company.
