When Sarah grew to young womanhood she married Joseph Couzens in England and to them were born five children, Elizabeth, William, George, Samuel and Sara Jane. Joseph joined the Latter-day Saint Church in January 1848 and Sarah about six months later. In 1851 they left England and started for Utah but had to remain in St. Louis, Missouri for one year in order to get enough means to go on. They arrived in Salt Lake City September 4, 1852 where they stayed through the winter; then went to Lehi where Joseph worked as a rock mason. He was killed by an Indian at Pelican Point February 20, 1856 while rounding up cattle and laid to rest in Lehi's old burying ground, along with two other men who were killed at the same time.
