  • Notes 
    • BIRTH: Ancestry file lists birthdate as 1831, "of Cleverly, Shropshire, England." One family group sheet lists birthplace as "American Fork, Utah, Utah," although all census records list "Scotland" as birthplace. Obituary lists clearly birthplace as "Dundee, Ireland." Interesting note is that her parents' birthplace is listed as "Ireland" on the census records.

      MIGRATION: Unable to identify Ellen in the Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel Index.
