It was a six-week journey to New York City and they were extremely happy to be welcomed by their husband and father who had been working there for two years. The family traveled by train to Lawrence, Nebraska, then by oxteam continued on across the plains. On the way, James took very sick with dysentery and died at the age of three years and twelve days.
