Isabella is not listed on the roster, as it contains only heads of household. However, it lists her father as traveling with a group consisting of six adults and three children. It is assumed that she, her mother, and sister were among that group, as they are with him on the overseas journey, arriving in New Orleans on 1 November 1850 via the ship the North Atlantic. Further research is needed to identify the rest of the traveling group.
Birth date in death records are not accurate. Early census records and emigration records confirm she was born in 1848.
