The Nauvoo, Illinois, home of David and Mary Ann Hoopes Yearsley is easily identified because it has three stories. It is located on the northwest corner of Partridge and White.
Born, raised and married in Pennsylvania, David and Mary Ann had eight children. They learned of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and traveled to Nauvoo to learn more. They were baptized into the church in 1841.
The Yearsleys were relatively well off financially and very generous with their means. David died on his way west at Winter Quarters, Nebraska, in 1849. Mary Ann continued on to Utah, established a home and lived to her 90s.
Their Nauvoo home is now owned by the LDS Church and used for missionary housing.
