Emily sailed to America in 1859 on the ship William Tapscott. The ship manifest shows her name as "Emily Lovatt," and she was a "spinster."
She married Henry Beck Evans in Salt Lake City on 2 January 1860, and they were divorced on 1 August 1861. She then married Andrew Sproul about 1862, and Alexander Stalker in 1865, and she died in Oregon, USA.
