Ann Howell Jones Burt was the only daughter of William and Martha Williams Howell, a well-to-do couple. (William owned a dry goods store.) Ann was born July 23, 1840, in Aberdare, Glamorganshire, Wales.
As a child, Ann roamed the fields near her house, and on one occasion she and one of her brothers attempted to cross a stream on a plank left by some workmen. Giggling and wiggling on the plank, they both fell in. They were pulled from the water unconscious, but some people nearby were able to revive them.
The Howell family was taught the Mormon gospel by missionary John Taylor. Soon after, William was called to serve a mission in France. When he came home for a visit, he decided to take Ann back with him. For one-and-a-half years, Ann helped her father distribute church materials while learning French. There was a lot of religious animosity against the two missionaries, and once Ann was kidnapped when left alone while her father found lodgings. However, Ann was so troublesome, the mob was happy to turn her over to a bystander.
Ann’s father died during the family’s journey to Brigham City, Utah, as did her brother William, Jr., who was run over by a wagon while asleep in tall grass.
At age 14, Ann married Ricy Davis Jones. They were later divorced. She then married John Davidson Burt. Ann distinguished herself in the community while supervising the Co-operative Millinery Shop. She died December 6, 1916.
