Catherine crossed the Atlantic on the ship "Emblem" with other family members in 1849. She and two of her daughters (Jane, a.k.a Ellen Jane and Maria a.k.a Ann Maria or Mariah) were in Pottawattamie County, Iowa by the 1850 census. Only Catherine and a married daughter (Mary Ann Broomhead Wheelock)appear to have traveled in this pioneer company. The rest of the family crossed the plains the same year, but in an unknown company. Additional research is needed to determine the name of their party. On the roster of the Weeks Company and in the 1852 Bishop's Report Catherine is listed simply as "Mrs." Broomhead.
