    Family 1 Mary Ann Baum,   b. 19 Jul 1835, Brandywine Twp, Chester Co, Pennsylvania, USA Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. 24 Apr 1886, Jerusalem, Sanpete Co, Utah, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  (Age 50 years) 
    Married 16 Mar 1852  Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co, Utah, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Notes 
    Married:
    • Ancestral File lists marriage date as 16 Mar 1861, however this is impossible due to each of their children beind born at an earlier date. The history of James Mason Cloward indicates James was married to Mary Ann Baum in 1852. If they were in fact married in 1852 it is logical the event took place at Salt Lake City considering the family migrated to Utah in 1851.
