A brother (Joseph Inkley) was born 29 January 1856. Another brother (Samuel) was born 21 October 1857 but died 12 days later and buried in the Ogden City Cemetery. They remained in Ogden until all the Weber County wards were moved south to Utah Valley just before Johnston's Army arrived in 1858. Georgina was now 4 years old when a sister was born in Springville, Utah (Lola Ann) 14 November 1858.
