Sarah, children Lydia, George H and Moreland came again from England in 1853 on the ship Jersey.
Sarah and her husband, George, made several trips across the plains. Their initial emigration was with the William Field Company in 1854. After staying in Salt Lake City for a time, the family moved to California in 1855. Then he decided to move the family back to St. Louis. They sailed from San Francisco, crossed the isthmus of Panama, ported at Cuba, and arrived in New Orleans in the fall of 1856. After living in St. Louis for a number of years, they left the family business in the care of his son-in-law, George A. Alder, and attempted to take the rest of the family to Salt Lake in the John D. Chase company in 1864. However, due to a disagreement that George had with his teamsters, they did not complete the journey and returned to St. Louis. Three years later, he captained his own company back to the Salt Lake Valley.
