Mary Ellison Birth Record

I've been spending some quiet time on Christmas Day looking at the hints in Ancestry, and saw this new document, the birth and baptismal record for Mary Ellison.

It shows her birth on August 13, 1799, and her christening on September 15, 1799. Her parents, Adam and Ellen Ellison, were from Welch Whittle, three miles southwest of Chorley, the town where the LDS Temple is currently located.

Mary and her husband, John Sutton, were baptized in 1851. They emigrated two years later, crossing the ocean in the Elvira Owen, and crossing the plains in the Joseph W. Young Company.

Here is some other information about John and Mary Ellison Sutton.
