Church ordinance records prove Martha arrived in Utah in 1852 but it is not clear with which pioneer company. Two of her unmarried daughters--Elizabeth and Jane--were in the Benjamin Gardner Company while a married daughter--Susan Pugh Bright--and a married granddaughter--Susan Caroline Stephenson Welker were in the Isaac M. Stuart Company. It seems likely that Martha was with the Brights and the Welkers because both families included unnamed members on the company roster but additional research is needed to clarify the issue.
