About 209 individuals and about 44 wagons were in the company when it began its journey from the outfitting post at Kanesville, Iowa (present day Council Bluffs).

It has been reported Sarah is buried in Old South Section. Unfortunately, the cemetery only has a list of people buried there but no lot numbers. Many grave stones are missing due to old age and a flood that occurred there ca. 1900.
