Ann was born June 27, 1794 in Tuscarora, Pennsylvania. She recorded that her parents names were Jonathan and Ann Hough. Ann married George around 1817. When they moved to Wayne Co. Ohio, they lived sixty miles from Kirtland. They heard the gospel and joined the church. They followed the prophet from Ohio, to Missouri, to Nauvoo. They traveled from Iowa to Utah, George being a Captain of his group. They arrived in the Valley of the Great Salt Lake in September 1851. Most likely they traveled with the rest of the family of Carsons and Griffeths.
Ann died February 1, 1869 at her daughter's home, Elizabeth Carson Griffith in Hyde Park. The cemetery is located in the Hyde Park cemetery, a few miles north of Logan.
From her patriarchal blessing given at Cedar Valley Aug. 26, 1857, we read, "Sister Ann, I lay my hands upon your head and bless you and you shall be blessed from this time forth and forever. You are entitled to the blessings of the fathers and I say your posterity shall by numerous, and you shall be blessed to the latest generation because of your integrity and perseverance, and notwithstanding you have had to pass through tribulations and your heart has been rent, yet the Lord almighty has sustained you and upheld you and you shall live till you are satisfied with life. Be an honor and a blessing to your Father's house hold, lay a good foundation for the time to come. I seal upon you the blessings of natural life and of health. Ye shall be blessed the remainder of your days. You shall be blessed of the Lord. You desire to see the kingdom flourish and therefore your generations after you shall be blessed. (I.V.Long recorder)
