She was baptized and moved with her family to Hancock County, Illinois, where she passed through the mobbings, and hardships in common with the rest of the members of the Church. As a faithful member of the Church she attended the dedication of the Nauvoo Temple. The family left Nauvoo at the time of the general exodus of the people.
