We know that Sophia arrived in Utah by 1850 because of her rebaptism which took place in Salt Lake City, Utah on 29 December 1850. Her name also appears on the 1850 Utah census, which was taken in the Spring of 1851.  Further research is needed to determine the exact year of her arrival and the name of the pioneer company she traveled to Utah with.
