Biographical notes: Ann was born to William Thomas Jones and his wife Mary Ann nee Elliott. Ann moved with her father, brothers and sisters, Emily, Ada and Marion Pinder, to Palmerston in November 1890 when her father was appointed Sub-Inspector of Customs to succeed Alfred Searcy. Her mother had died in 1881. Her father died suddenly in December 1891 and is buried in the Palmerston Cemetery, but the sisters stayed together. In 1895, when Ann was 34, she was one of the 82 women who enrolled to vote after the franchise was granted to South Australian and Territory women in 1894. Her occupation was listed as "spinster". However, she had employment as a domestic according to later roll listings. She was taken off the roll again in 1907 because she had left Palmerston. Ann died at 76 in Queensland in 1934.
