Susannah was first married to Orville Morgan Allen on 20 Jun 1848 in Iowa. They had one daughter named Mary Josephine Allen. Her husband had been sent on a church mission and was reported by some of the men who knew him, that he had been killed, so she assumed she was a widow. She and her daughter joined with the William Wall Company and left for the Salt Lake Valley on 13 Jun 1850, in the company of the Lindsay Anderson Brady family. They arrived on 19 Sep 1850.

On 11 Jul 1852, Susannah became the second wife of Lindsay A. Brady. She was the first school teacher in Fairview, Utah. About 1854, Susannah crossed paths with her first husband and was shocked that he was alive. She then decided to stay with Lindsay, with whom she had had four more children, Jane Brady, Josephia Brady, John David Ward Brady and Thomas Lindsay Ward Brady.
