Orson Pratt Brown's Wife's Paternal Grandmother
Ann Wilkie Galbraith Hooper
Ann Wilkie was born on February 18, 1813 in Glasgow, Scotland to William Wilkie (b. 6 Aug 1775 in Cathcart, Lanark, Renfrew, Scotland) and Margaret Paul Wilkie (born August 28, 1779 at Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland; died on October 29, 1873 in Ayr, Ayr, Scotland). Ann was the 8th of twelve children.
Ann married George Galbraith, a civil engineer serving the British Crown, on July 13, 1832 at Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland. Ann and George lived in many different cities, including Belfast, Ireland; Antwerp and Brussels, Belgium; Hull and London, England; and finally they were assigned to St. Kitts Island in the West Indies.
Here they both contracted yellow fever and George shortly died thereafter. Ann and the three children were taken back to England.
Later, Ann moved to South Hampton and became a stewardess on the steamer "Grand Turk". In that capacity she met and married John Hooper. They sailed together on many voyages.
They joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in England and emigrated to America on the ship "Golconda". From New Orleans they traveled to St. Louis and joined the Daniel Garn Wagon Company, leaving for Salt Lake on July 1, 1854.
In the Spring of 1855 they bought a farm in Kaysville. They camped out all summer and in the fall John made a dugout in the side of a hill. During the winter of 1855 they willingly shared what they had with others, so that by spring they too were living on greens, barley, and anything else they could find.
When the threat of Johnston's Army came they moved their family to Spanish Fork. After the threat was over they returned in time to harvest their crops. The next year they bought a home in Ogden and eventually settled in Hooper, Utah.
Ann was a leader in the women's Relief Society and was loved by many. She passed away following a stroke in 1875 at her home in Hooper, Weber County, Utah.
