At age 11 Laura traveled from Liverpool to New Orleans with her large, well-to-do family. Transshipped to St. Louis, Mssouri and from there to Atcheson, Kansas, on the steamship Clara.

Near here Laura's mother died of cholera. Four days later, Laura's grandmother also died of cholera. Here at Mormon Grove, Lars Lund, Laura's father bought her a beautiful palomino mare which she rode across the plains to Great Salt Lake. She helped herd the livestock.
