Margaret Ann Noah was born in Kennet, Chester Heights, Delaware County, Pennsylvania on April 19, 1794. She was christened December 21, 1795 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
During the years 1804 and 1805, their family moved to Nelson, Portage County, Ohio where her father bought land and followed in his work as an agriculturist.
Margaret Ann Noah met and married Charles Hulet, a widower and farmer, (the brother of Sally Hulet, who married Elisha Whiting, Jr.) on October 10, 1816 at Ravenna, Portage County, Ohio. Charles was born in Lee, Berkshire County, Massachusetts on March 3, 1790.
One year after the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized, in 1831, missionaries visited in nearby Nelson, Ohio, where their family was taught and baptized by Parley P. Pratt in February of that year.
Soon after their baptism, they felt the vicious persecutions against the Church and felt the need to move from Ohio to Missouri, then on to Illinois. After the saints were driven from Nauvoo, they crossed through Iowa and stayed in Council Bluffs until 1850.
Charles and Margaret Ann Hulet, with some of their children, crossed the plains with the Aaron Johnson Wagon Company and arrived in Salt Lake Valley on September 12, 1850.
They were sent to Springville, Utah Territory, where they were one of the original thirteen families to start a settlement there.
Margaret Ann was the mother of ten children and raised them to be righteous and true to the faith. She, with her “sister wife”, Mary Kirkman Lawson, were known as angels of mercy.
Margaret Ann was a very good practical nurse. She did so much for so many, caring for the sick. She was known as Nurse Hulet. An epidemic of diphtheria struck the town and while she was caring for a family of children next door, she contracted the dreaded disease and died on April or May 15, 1857. Her husband Charles Hulet died May 9, 1863 at Springville.
Her parents were John (Johan) Mathias Noah, born October 20, 1760, at Dresden, Saxony, Germany who died at Garretsville, Portage, Ohio April 1, 1849; and Elizabeth Schmidt, born on Christmas day, December 25, 1768, at Chester Heights, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
