Evidence from emigration and genealogical records proves that Martha Thorpe traveled to Utah sometime in 1857. She sailed to America in 1857 as a single woman, apparently married John Cutler in Salt Lake City in 1857 and had a child in June 1858, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. A John Cutler appears in the 1857 Jesse B. Martin Company, but there is no original roster for that company which shows Martha's name. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company she traveled with.
