She was a widow traveling with two of her children, as well as Thomas and Francis Goddard. On company and PEF records they are inaccurately represented with the Wolfenden surname. The PEF record has a notation that confirms the actual parents of Thomas and Francis.
She arrived in New York on 1 June 1862 via the ship John J. Boyd. Her travel to Utah is also confirmed in her daughter Mary Ellen's obituary.
