    • "Perhaps enough money had been saved to pay the passage for one person, and if the father could get to America and Utah the opportunities might be better for him there to improve the total financial status of the family. The boys could continue their work in the mines and support their mother in the absence of the father. And so, it was planned for Archibald to make the trip to Zion alone, hoping to bring the other members of the family at a later time." [2]

    Notes 
    • International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers. Pioneer Women of Faith and Fortitude, Vols. I-IV. Publishers Press, 1998:

      Agnes and her husband belonged to the Presbyterian Church. They met the missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the 1840ís, accepted the gospel, and were baptized.

      Eager to come to America and be with the Saints, Archibald came first in 1855, leaving Agnes and the family behind as there was only enough money for one person to come. On March 23, 1856, Agnes and her children were able to leave Scotland for America. After arriving in Iowa City, on May 12, 1856, they had to wait four weeks before they could commence their journey across the Plains. Agnes and her children were assigned to the Daniel McArthur Handcart Company. They pulled their cart from ten to twenty five miles a day and slept on the ground at night. They arrived in Salt Lake Valley, September 26, 1856.

      The family moved to Spanish Fork in 1857. In 1880, they moved to Fairview, Utah, which became their permanent home and the place where their ultimate dream was being fulfilled.
