Notes for Mary Ann Wixom:
Mary Ann Wixom, the fourth child of Nathan J. and Betsey Eliza Hadlock Wixom, was born on a farm in LaSalle county, Illinois, December 12, 1834. After the arrival of the family in Monterey, California, Mary Ann became the wife of Lucian Delancy Crandall, a young man from Springville, Utah, with whom she had become acquainted prior to leaving for California. Their first child was born at the ranch January 18, 1855-that would have been William Nelson-and that is why he was born in San Benito.Shortly after his birth the Crandall family moved to San Bernardino where three children, Lucian Delancy, Nathan and Eliza were born. While Eliza was still an infant the family returned to Utah. After the death of their son Nathan, who had contracted scarlet fever, the family again journeyed to San Bernardino where two children were born, Laura and Myron, both dying in infancy.
In 1872, the Crandalls returned to Utah making their home first in the Tintic district and later in Springville. Two more children, Rose and Chauncy, came to bless their home. During the next few years Lucian and his older sons followed railroad construction work, and while thus employed in Canada, he was stricken with a heart attack and passed away. Mary brought her husband's body back to Springville for burial.
In the winter of 1886/87, most of her children having gone back to California, she with the two younger ones, Rose and Chauncy, joined them. She and Rose eventually established a home in San Bernardino where, after a brief illness, Mary passed away May 29, 1927 and was buried in her father's plot in the San Bernardino cemetery.
