Married 5 Apr 1869 in the Endowment House at Salt Lake City to James Holt Haslam.
We kept a small green grocery. After father came to America, we were unable to get enough money to run it. The early part of my life, while in England, was spent working in the factory. At age twenty-one I came to America with John Hilton, his wife and two children. They were to pay my fare if I would help with the children. Mother thought it a fine chance for me to come to America. It was a sad parting for me, leaving my mother and two brothers in England. Instead of Mr. Hilton coming on to Utah as he intended, he stayed in New York, being persuaded by a man he had met on the boat who was going to Philadelphia to work in a coal mine. He said nothing of this to his wife, and on landing in New York, left us. We slept one night in the depot then were sent to the “poor house” where we stayed for two weeks. We had to sleep on hard benches and our meals consisted of water and dry bread. Hilton finally came back for us, telling me he had a job for me working for Mrs. Sage, a Catholic lady, living at Pittsburgh. You can imagine how glad was at the thought or leaving the “poor house”. Mr. Hilton would not give me my trunk so had to go without it. He went to the coal mines where I learned afterward, he was killed. Later, his wife got up a subscription for money, saying she wanted to go on to Utah. She used the money instead to go back to England where she told a good many untrue things about the Mormons.
