On 16 May 1853 This family left Council Bluffs, Iowa with the: Moses Clawson Company. Arriving in the Salt Lake Valley 15-20 Sept 1853. John and Sarah were both (38) Solomon {12}, Sarah {9}, Enoch {6}, John Jr. Infant. Sarah Tracey and Elizabeth Tracey are not listed in this Company, But I have found Sarah Tracey in the Salt Lake City Cemetery, having died: 24 Feb. 1858 Her birth is 17 Dec. 1793 England.

----------------------------------------- -

It appears that John and Sarah divorce. John marries Julia McKensey and lives in Parowan. . From the history of her Son in Law William Alma Holt, it seems Sarah Married a John Riddle. They were 'sealed' 15 July 1857. In the Presidents Office. I have not been able to find any information on this. I do not know when Sarah Died or where she is buried. The last thing I have on Sarah, she is in the 1880 Parowan, Iron, Utah Census, at 67 years of age. Her 19 year old Grandson William Alma Holt is living with her. She is keeping house, her Grandson is a Laborer.
