It is uncertain when Charlotte and her children traveled to Utah. Her husband, William Felshaw came to Utah in 1851 with the John G. Smith pioneer company, but their names do not appear on that company's records with him. Charlotte gave birth to Eleanor in October 1850 in Iowa, and she and her children appear in the 1850 Iowa census, which was taken 10 October 1850, so the earliest they could have departed for Utah is 1851. The first documentation to place her in Utah is her second marriage, on 15 April 1855 in Salt Lake City, to Isaac Chase, which proves that she arrived in Utah between 1851 and 1854. Further research is needed to determine the year she and her children arrived in Utah and the name of the pioneer company with which they traveled.Catherine's parents divorced, so some records list her surname as "Walters," which was her mother's maiden name.
Her birth date is taken from Centerville Ward records and confirmed by census records.
The 1850 Iowa census shows her surname as "Walter."
Catherine's death certificate shows her name as "Catherine Felshaw McBride.
