Together they operated an agricultural mission station along the Neosho River (the portion of this river in Oklahoma now called Grand River) called Hopefield in present northeast Oklahoma. This station was intended to strictly teach the Osage Indians the art of agriculture. It had earlier been located some four miles north of Union Mission on the Neosho but was subsequently relocated northward some forty miles from Union Mission. At the time of Susan's death it had been relocated to present southeast Kansas (either at present-day Neosho or south adjoining Labette county) where it was renamed New Hopefield.
