Lydia Ann Electa Cranston

Lydia Ann married Isaac Hawley in Illinois in 1848, and the married James Monroe Ide in California in 1857.  They came to Utah in either 1857 or 1858, and Lydia gave birth to a baby girl in 1858 in Tooele, Utah.  We do not have the exact date of the baby's birth.  Further research is needed to determine the year of their arrival in Utah from California, and the name of the pioneer company with which they traveled.

Lydia appears in the 1850 Illinois census as "Lydia A. Hawley."
