Annie Jane Amelia Foster
Annie and her brother, Michael, were traveling with her mother and step-father, Ann and Matthew, and arrived in Boston on 20 April 1857 via the ship George Washington. The family is first documented in the Valley when Annie, her brother, and mother were rebaptized in the Seventeenth ward on 6 January 1858, which was prior to that year's emigration season. So, they must have crossed the plains in 1857.
Her birth date (and parents names and place of birth) are documented at the time of the rebaptism.
There is a "Father Gibbons" who traveled in the 1857 Jesse Martin Company. It is possible that Father Gibbons was actually Matthew Gibbons. If this can be documented, Matthew and his family could be moved to that company.
