AUSTIN, Louise Maria
Louise Maria Austin


Louise Maria Austin is my 3rd great-grandmother.  She was born 21 June 1838 in Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut to Julius Augustus Caesar Austin and Octavia Ann Lane.  She and her parents were pioneers who traveled on the Ship Brooklyn from New York City to San Francisco.  After arriving in San Francisco, they eventually traveled by wagon to Salt Lake City.

On 12 April 1860, Louise married Joseph Thompson Cheney in Farmington, Utah.  Louise & Joseph had eight children.  On 26 April 1927, Louise died in Laketown, Utah.

This photo was found in my Grandma’s collection in a folder she labeled as “CHENEY.”  Here is the back of the photo:
