Sarah Jane Fullmer

Evidence from genealogical records proves that the Sarah Sophronia Oysterbanks Fuller and her daughter Sarah Jane came to Utah sometime between 1848 and 1850. A son, Samuel Fullmer, was born to Sarah 2 June 1848 in Winter Quarters, Nebraska and died 22 Mar. 1849, but we do not know where his death took place. The first documentation to place them in Utah is the birth of Juliette in Salt Lake City in August 1851. Sarah Jane's father, David Fullmer came to Utah in the 1848 Willard Richards Company, but it is uncertain as to whether or not Sarah and her mother came with him. They do not appear on the 1850 Utah census with David. Further research is needed to determine the year they came to Utah and the name of the company they traveled with.
