Evidence from emigration, newspaper and church (Perpetual Emigrating Fund) records proves Mary Ann Cato traveled to Utah in 1857. She married Charles R. Dana, an officer in the Martin company, only two days after arriving in Salt Lake City.
Her birth and death dates are confirmed by her death certificate and the inscription on her gravestone. She traveled alone from England on the ship, George Washington in 1857.
