      2. Mary Ann's mother George Gillet Hales, marries as her second husbandwho is the brother of Mary Ann's husband.

      BIRTH:
      1. Obituaries cited below indicates 3 Apr 1859. Ord. Ind. for 1881 endowment indicates 4 Apr 1860 as does her mothers DUP biography [as cited in mother's notes]. I use the latter date which also seems to correspond better to a live baptism Aug 1868.

      2. The obituaries below mistake the name of the father as Thomas Mendenhall. Mary Ann did have a grandfather and uncle named Thomas Mendenhall. Mary Ann's father died when she was seven years old. Evidently whoever reported the obituary was ill-informed as to the proper name of her father.

      MARRIAGE:
      1. Variant location per www.hales.org 21 Dec 2002 is Salt Lake City. I don't believe this is correct considering they did not go to the temple for a couple of years until after their marriage.

      DEATH:
      1. Per obituary cited below.

      BURIAL:
      1. Per obituary cited below.
