Mary Ann Markham Nunn

This is Mary Ann Markham Nunn, Olive Nunn Wixom's mother.

When I knew Olive, she was about this age, and resembled her mother a lot, I thought.

Mary Ann Markham was an orphan, her parents both died of a contagious disease so everything they owned was destroyed.  Mary Ann really didn't know very much about her parents so her genealogy is very difficult to do, we have so little information.

After she married, she and her husband and family moved from Nebraska to Idaho in a covered wagon, and then her first husband (Olive's father) died. Mary Ann outlived her husband for many years, and remarried, and lived in Idaho until her death.
