After she was married, she and Edward attended St. John the Evangelist in Kenn, Somerset, England. All of her children except the youngest, Joseph, were baptized there.

Letitia, Edward, and the children (except for Jane, who came with her grandmother Sarah in 1839), arrived in New York, New York from Bristol, England on board the ship Cosmo 15 May 1846.

That same year, her youngest son Joseph Henry was born in Pottsville, Schuylkill, PA.

Letitia lived in Schuylkill and Montour Counties in Pennsylvania. And at one point she lived next door to her brother William and his wife Maria after she was widowed.

Her last thirty years were spent living with her daughter Elizabeth and son-in-law John Lunger.
