In the spring of 1847, Robert T. Thomas was with the first company of faithful followers who set out from Winter Quarters, under Brigham Young, on the long journey west. He arrived in the valley on July 22, 1847, and helped establish the Utah settlement. Robert T. Thomas was in the company of 33 men sent by Brigham Young in March 1849 to settle Ft. Field near Utah Lake. Mary Ann Turner taught school in the old fort in Utah County. Mary Ann and Robert were married in the old fort on April 18, 1850.

Mary Ann Thomas (Turner) was born on 30 Mar 1827
Mary Ann Thomas (Turner) was 5 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Mary Ann Thomas (Turner) was 13 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor.
