Mary Taylor Crowther
Mary was a midwife by profession. She is placed in the Joseph Horne company by Fanny Stevenson's reminiscence. Mary is referred to as the "lady doctor or doctoress" that cared for Fanny's ailing father. The reminiscence also states of the Horne company, "when this company of pioneers neared the valley they were met by David McKenzie, a son-in-law of the doctor. He came out with a horse team and wagon to take her into Salt Lake City two or three days in advance of the rest of the company." Mary Taylor Crowther's daughter Mary Ann Crowther was married to David McKenzie in 1859.
Mary's age is inaccurate on the roster of the ship William Tapscott.
