Evidence from newspaper and genealogical records proves that Florence traveled to Utah in 1867. The article regarding her 97th birthday states that she came to Utah when 15 years of age, which would be 1867. The first documentation to place her in Utah is her marriage in January 1868, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company she traveled with.
