[I received this story from Vernita Loaine Seiber (my mother). I'm not sure where she got it from] Mary Ann Moon was born in 1824 [some debate on the date. Her tombstone clearly says June 5, 1815] in her native city [Dundee or Perth, Scotland] and attended school in the elementary grades and one year in grammar grades. Then she spent two years working in a bakery and in 1843 she married James Lauder who was a ship hand employed by a contract company engaged in the building of boats and freighting on the river and onto the open sea. Shortly after their marriage, Mr. Lauder was assigned by his company to take a cargo to France. It was presumed that he was lost at sea for he did not return to his home. August 13, 1843, a son was born to Mrs. Lauder. She named him James for his father. She found it difficult to get means to provide for herself and her son. She found employment in a bakery and at her out of time [sic] for bakery service, she took courses in nursing, specializing in mother-child. In 1850, Mrs. Lauder married William Scrowther, April 2, 1851, a daughter was born to them. They gave her the name Mary Ann, and a son, whom they named William, was born November 5, 1854. James Lauder [the son] had by 1854 procured a job in a jewelry store as a chore boy. William's father was lost at sea when William was 2 years of age, leaving the mother with the three children to support and care for. They were James Lauder, William Scrowther and Mary Ann Scrowther. In 1863, Mrs. Scrowther and her three children left Scotland for the United States, [She had joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon)] and in about three weeks they arrived in New York; thence on to St. Louis and from St. Louis they moved to Florence, Nebraska on a flat boat on the Missouri River. There they joined with the William B. Preston Company; they had the good fortune to ride in James Meikle's wagon. (He was also of Dundee Scotland). They came into Salt Lake Valley, September 12, 1863, where they spent about three weeks, thence to Logan and, after a few weeks they moved to Smithfield, December 19, 1863. The four members of whom we are writing: Mrs. Mary Ann Moon Lauder Scrowther and her three children, James Lauder, William Scrowther, and Mary Ann Scrowther, (later Mrs. Joseph McCracken) made their lifetime homes at Smithfield doing "thousands" of good deed adding to the development of their community and church.

HISTORY OF MARY ANN MOON LAUDER SCROWTHER

Colaborador: rperry Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Mary Ann Moon Lauder Scrowther was born June 5, 1815 in Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. She was christened in the Middle Church in Perth on June 11, 1815. In 1841 Census in Scotland, she is listed as living alone, 25 years old and an embroider. In 1842 she was married to James Lauder. A few months after their marriage he left on a sea voyage as a sailor, but never returned. Day after day she watched by the seashore. On the 13th of August 1843 a son was born and named James after his father. She then went to work and learned to be a midwife. She was baptized in the LDS church July 3, 1847 in Dundee, Angusshire, Scotland. Her mother Mary Robertson Moon was baptized March 12, 1848 at the age of 62 1/2. Her mother died 29 May 1849. Mary Ann married William Scrowther 27 Jun 1849. He was a member of the church too. To this union were born two children, Mary Ann and William Scrowther. Seven years later in 1856 her husband William Scrowther died. She left Dundee Scotland with her three children in May 1863 to go to Zion because of her belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They labored hard and saved money enough to pay their immigration to Zion. They were four weeks on the ocean on the John J. Boyd sailing vessell and landed at New York in June. From New York they went by rail to St. Louis, then on a flat boat up the Missouri River to Florence, Nebraska (Winter Quarters). Here they met Bishop William B. Preston’s company. They joined this company and continued their journey west with the James Meikle wagon. They arrived in Salt Lake City September 12, 1863. In December they moved to Smithfield. Mary Ann was a great lover of literature, music and dramatics. She was a good singer. Her family all sang in the Robert Fishburn Choir. She taught her children to act on the stage. They all took part in early dramatics of this city. She loved flowers so much that at the time the crickets and grasshoppers were so bad, she took her only two aprons and covered up her few flowers. She felt badly when the pests ate both the aprons and flowers. She learned to spin wool and the other processes to make raw wool into cloth. They were penniless when they got to Utah. She had to sacrifice jewelry and fine cloth, which they had brought from Scotland to pay for the necessities of life until her sons, could obtain work to help with their living expenses. She was sealed to her second husband in the Endowment House November 1, 1869. Her son James Lauder didn't like his stepfather and refused to be sealed to them while he was living. Grandmother Gene had him sealed to them on October 29, 1958. Later it became possible to seal both Mary Ann and her son James to her first husband James Lauder on September 22, 1989 in the Logan Temple. It will be interesting to see whom she chooses. She died in Smithfield December 13, 1886 at the age of 71. She is buried in the Smithfield City Cemetery.

History of My Mother, Mrs. Mary Ann Scrowther [McCracken] By Joyce McCracken Lewis

Colaborador: rperry Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

History of My Mother, Mrs. Mary Ann Scrowther [McCracken] By Joyce McCracken Lewis State of Utah Cached County Camp William B Preston The Society of Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Logan, Utah Mary Ann Scrowther McCracken was born in Perth, Scotland, March 26, 1851. She was an early pioneer, arriving in Smithfield in December, 1865 she resided there until the time of her death, meantime being a progressive, energetic and loyal citizen. She left Perth, Scotland accompanied by her mother, Mary Ann Moon Scrowther; her brother William Scrowther and half-brother James Lauder, for Zion in the latter part of May 1863 for the sake of the belief they possessed in the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was but five years of age when her father died. At the age of 10 she began working in a factory one half-day and attending school the remaining half-day. The family labored hard and saved enough money to pay for their immigration to Zion. They were six weeks crossing, and arrived in New York the middle of July. From New York, they went by rail to St. Louis; thence on a three day flat boat journey up the Missouri River to Florence, Nebraska commonly called "Winter Quarters". Here they met Bishop William B. Preston's company, which they joined and continued on with, riding in James Meikle's wagon. Being a favorite among the guards, she often road horseback on the way across the plains, entertaining them with her singing. On September 12 the company landed at Salt Lake City, where they remained a short time; then moved on to Farmington, joining the Robert Murdoch family. After a two weeks' stay there they came to Logan. After remaining in Logan one month they went to Smithfield in December of the same year. At that time she was 14 years of age. She took an active part in church activities for many years being a member of the first dramatic company, a Sunday school teacher, Relief Society teacher, and a member of the ward choir from the time of Robert Fishburne's leadership until she died. She was always faithful and never faltered from the truth. She gave excellent support to her children in their various church activities and was always ready and willing to assist them in becoming honorable citizens. She passed through the hardships incident to pioneer life in Utah. Cleaning wheat, grinding it into flour with the coffee mill, spinning, and weaving were her duties. Upon their arrival they had no money but were too proud to let their circumstances be known, therefore, they traded their jewelry and fine dress goods, which they had brought with them from Perth, to secure enough money for living expenses until they obtained work herding sheep the following spring. They lived inside the walled fort line near First West Street. Her brother herded sheep in and near the canyon. She carried his meals to him, often in great danger of the Indians. She worked three months for her first lindsey dress. At another time her wages for one weeks' work was 1/2 pound of butter. As most of the pioneers worked at spinning, making cloth from raw wool, she did the same. Her husband died June 11, 1901 leaving a large family. He owned a furniture business which she successfully conducted under the name of Mrs. Joseph McCracken until 1916, when she retired. This was the first furniture business in Smithfield, and was operated under the name of "The McCracken Furniture Company", under the management of her eldest son, Henry, who took his father's place after his death. Mary Ann Scrowther McCracken was a friend to all her who knew her, and was always willing to help in time of sickness and trouble. She was faithful and true to the Church. She was called upon to sing at all the ward gatherings. She was the mother of 10 children, burying three. She died February 27, 1920 leaving behind the sweetest memories of a loving kind and true mother.
