Evidence from emigration, church (Perpetual Emigrating Fund), and genealogical records proves the Hastings family traveled to Utah in 1861. A family history written by the granddaughter of Mary Elizabeth Hasting's (Farley) suggests that the family were part of the John Horne company. However, primary source evidence to support this suggestion is lacking. More research needs to be completed to confirm the Hasting family's participation in the John Horne company before they can be assigned to that group in the database.
Jane and her children emigrated to the United States separately from her husband, John. Jane and her children, Emma, Mary, and John, sailed on the ship Manchester in 1861.
Her death certificate shows her name as "Mary Elizabeth Farley, and it confirms her birth and death dates.
Mary married Winthrope Farley in 1863 in Salt Lake City.
