The Hackings went to St. Louis to work in the mines, while the Fishers remained in New Orleans, being too sick or young to travel. News was soon sent for William's step brother, John Sampson, to return to help his Fisher family because they were starving and getting sicker.

John Sampson worked on the boat to earn passage to go to New Orleans. Arriving in New Orleans he was surprised to find his parents and family had passed him about five miles from St. Louis. Thomas Pearson, his mother's brother, hearing of their plight, had paid their passage to St. Louis. Sadly, it was too late to save baby William who died of starvation just as the family arrived in Saint Louis.
