Sarah Elizabeth Voorhees

Evidence from church records proves that the Voorhees family traveled to Utah in 1852.  Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.

Her name is listed as Sarah A. Minster on her death certificate.  There is no picture of her gravestone on the Find a Grave website, but a note there indicates that the birth date on her death certificate, 6 August 1829, is incorrect.
