In 1870, at the request of Brigham Young, she studied Morse code and moved to Pipe Spring, Arizona, to work for the Deseret Telegraph Company. Thus she became the first telegraph operator in Arizona. Later, working in Kanab, Utah she telegraphed the news of John Wesely Powell's Second Expedition to Washington, DC.

In 1875 she married David King Udall. They moved to Saint Johns, Arizona in 1880, where David was a LDS Bishop. Their marriage produced 8 children. A life long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she consented to her husband's participation in plural marriage, though David's second wife (Ida Hunt) lived in another town.
