Biography

Mary Ann's life is well described in her book (see references below).

She was born in a cabin in Parley's Park, a small town north of Park City, Utah. Her mother died when she was two years old, so her and her younger sister were raised by their grandmother. Her father would later remarry twice.

At age 12 her father took Mary Ann with the family on a mission to settle St Johns, Arizona (May/June 1884).

She was 16 when she married Rone Richey who at age 40, was one year older than her father. They settled on a farm at Richville, just 20 miles south of St Johns.

In 1922, her husband retired from farming and they relocated into St Johns. He died in 1930. Mary Ann was a widow for 43 years.
