Autobiography of Mary Dunn Ensign

A story about your Great Great Grandmother

Dear Family;

I have been looking on Family Tree ( and I found an amazing story of our Great Great Grandmother, Mary Dunn Ensign (1833-1920)  If you go to your family tree and click on Martin Luther Ensign (1831-1911) who was her husband, you can find the biography of Mary Dunn Ensign.  She was 15 yrs old and her family lived next door to the ProphetJoseph Smith.  She tells about meeting the Prophet and her story about living in Nauvoo during the time the Prophet Joseph was killed.  It is very touching.  Their oldest daughter is our great grandmother – Mary Adeline (Addi) Ensign and she married John Lloyd Roberts who also has some pictures and stories on Family tree.
