Her obituary indicates with which company she and her family traveled.
Her husband, James, is incorrectly listed on the 1850 census as "Benjamin Hawkins." At some point in 1850, James and Sarah housed Jeremiah, Catherine, and Lorella Stayner while their father, Jesse Stayner, went to California during the Gold Rush.
In November 1852, Sarah married William G. Dunn.
By July 1852, Jesse returned to Utah to collect his children, one of whom (Lorella) had died while in the care of Sarah Hawkins. In spring of 1853, on behalf of his wife Sarah, William G. Dunn sued Jesse for non-payment. Sarah Hawkins and William Dunn both appear on the legal documents.
