Evidence from emigration and church records proves that Mary traveled to Utah in 1851. She sailed to America in 1850 on the Joseph Badger, arriving in New Orleans 23 Nov. 1850, which was past the time she could have joined a pioneer company. The first evidence to place her in Utah is a church ordinance performed 31 Jan. 1852, 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.
