When [Naomi] saw that [Ruth] was steadfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.
We left our home on the 26th of May and crossed the sea in the Ship Horizon. We had a prosperous voyage of nearly forty days and landed at Boston from which place we traveled by rail to Iowa City...We left Iowa City in the month of August to cross the plains with a handcart in the company known as Martin Company. We had a perilous journey across the plains...We arrived in Salt Lake City on the last day of November of the same year after suffering many hardships and privations for the truths sake but I know my reward is sure. We arrived in Payson on the 2nd of December and were well treated by the people. I could not stand on my feet for three months after I arrived. In the month of February 1858 I married John H. Moore.The many hardships and privations to which Mary tersely refers included a case of frostbite in which she lost not only flesh from her feet, but later endured having the exposed bones and joints removed with scissors—the only tool available for the purpose. She did not recover until a year or so after arriving in Utah and settling in Payson, where she and her boys were taken into the home and hearts of the Moore family. As her health permitted, she contributed to the household by carding and spinning wool, and by weaving fabric for clothing and household linens. In 1858, she married John Harvey Moore. She also became a leader in the Relief Society.
