Biography of Mary Jeannette John

Marie Jeanette was born in Wales in 1821. She married Llewellyn Griffith Jones 11 July 1840, at Llantrisant Parish, Glamorgan, South Wales. They were the parents of eight children. Their oldest son David, when a young man, brought his littler sister Tabitha to Utah, settling in Bloomington, Bear Lake County, Idaho.

When his parents arrived, David had built their home on a hill on a five acre plot of rich farming ground. It was about a mile and three quarters from town, a mile from the bottom of the hill. It afforded a view of the town below and surrounding bounty for miles.

Marie Jeanette passed away on April 11, 1880, at nearly sixty-nine years of age.
