Mary was from England. There is contradiction amongst various sources as to which 1856 company Mary traveled with. The Journal History, 15 December 1856, p. 4 places Mary on the William B. Hodgetts Company. It is a later source, compiled by Josiah Rogerson and printed in the 4 January 1914 issue of the Salt Lake Tribune (and transcribed into the Journal History) that places her in the Martin company. However, in a 9 October 1856 letter to Brigham Young, Jesse Haven writes "I immediately got Sister Hill from the Hand cart Company" to tend to Thomas Tennant who died near Scotts Bluffs. The Hodgetts company was not a handcart company. It was a company of wagons. It is for this reason she is placed in the Martin company on this database.
