Suddenly, in 1858, the family made the momentous decision to sell everything they owned and start walking to Sydney with a goal of migrating to the USA. Halfway to Sydney they became bogged down by the weather and spent the winter in Beechworth, Victoria. Misfortune befell them, the family split up, and some headed for South America while the others made plans to go to California.
