They lived for a few years in Kansas, where their daughter, Ada, was born.

Before 1880 they were living in Brant, Wisconsin, where their son Lee and their second daughter Fern were born. Later, they lived in Lodi, Wisconsin. She died in Los Angeles in 1919. Sarah Jane Schooley separated from her husband, Rev. Edward A. Abbott in about 1890. She went to California, where she became a dedicated relief worker with a women's Christian organization.

From this time on, she always used the public name of "Florence Abbott". She traveled with her relief organization up and down the coast of California, writing letters to her daughter from such places as San Jose, Santa Maria, Santa Barbera, and Los Angeles, where she eventually settled. In a few letters, her daughter ask that their regards be conveyed to "Captain Brinckerhoff".
