Maria crossed the Atlantic on the ship Ellen Maria with her husband John B. and daughter Matura in 1851. John and Matura died in Illinois: John at St. Louis and Maaura at Alton. Maria's surname is spelled "Rollings" on the Deseret News roster. She is the mother of Heber Rawlings; however, family search records has his mother dying in 1864 in Illinois. Further research is needed.
