      About three years after David [Evans] death the mother [Sarah Mathias] married a man by the name of Henry Needham Bake. They heard the gospel and were baptized into the [LDS] Church in the year 1856. Sarah [Evans] was baptized in the Ohio River in January 1861 by Nathan Meads and confirmed the same day by Joseph Reed.

      This new family continued to live in Pittsburgh until 1853, when they moved to Newport, Kentucky. After as short time there, they moved back to Pittsburgh. Sarah had six half brothers and sisters; Elizabeth Needham Bake, John Alfred Bake, Rebecca Hannah Bake, Oliver Cowdry Bake, Orson Henry Bake and David Dillie Bake. The four oldest were born in the East, three in Pittsburgh and John Alfred in Newport, Kentucky.

      The family came to Utah in Captain Ira Eldredge's company. They left Florence, Nebraska June 30, 1861. At some point along the way, Sarah's brother Daniel decided to return to Pittsburgh to live with relatives there. The company arrived in Salt Lake August 22. The following January Orson Henry was born.

      The Bake family moved from Salt Lake to Goshen, Utah where they lived two years and endured many trials and hardships. On leaving Goshen, they moved to Cache Valley, Utah where they lived for some time. In 1864, they moved to Bear Lake [Idaho] and settled in Bloomington, being among the first settlers in that town. Sarah's step-father left his family in Bloomington while he went to Hyde Park to get a load of flour. On his way back he became stuck and had to leave his load of flour in Immigration Canyon [sic] and come home without any. The family was forced to eat boiled wheat all winter.

      Sarah's mother was in poor health and their home consisted of some willows put up to form a shelter. It was here with a three inch cover of snow on her bed that she gave birth to a baby boy (David Dille) who lived less than two weeks. In the spring Sarah [Cornelia] went to Hyde Park and the family soon joined her. Her mother was still sick and passed away soon leaving Sarah to take care of the children.
