In 1881, Georgina (aka Jorgena) and the three younger boys, Antone, Fred and August were sent to Utah. Georgina was 16, Anton 13, Fred 11 1/2 and August 8 years of age. They were on the ocean ten weeks and were tired and disillusioned when they reached Brigham City, Utah.
They landed in Liverpool at midnight and Georgina put her little brother, August, on her back, his arms around her neck.

The other two boys took what luggage they could carry and she took the rest and made their way down Main Street to the ocean to embark for New York where they rested for two days before continuing their journey. They arrived in Salt Lake City July 20, 1881.

In 1883 August was sent to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Iverson at Brigham City. He contacted mumps that fall and caught cold while herding cows in the meadows west of town and died.
