Most early Bear Lake Settlers Came
from Britain. One was the first woman
convert to the LDS Church in Europe.
Born in Preston, England, Aug. 24, 1806, Ann
Elizabeth Walmsley Palmer was baptized July 30,
1837. An invalid, she was carried into the water,
but walked out unaided. After coming to Nauvoo,
Illinois, in 1842, she drove an oxteam to Utah
in 1849 and settled here in 1863. She
died here Nov. 2, 1890. Through faith
she gained the strength to overcome trials
and to achieve triumphs.
