Uriah and Ludie worked hard to get the farm in Florida back in shape. They had two children, one in 1898 and another in 1899. After selling the farm in 1901 they boarded the train for Utah only to end up in Colonia Dublan in Old Mexico because it seemed a better choice. Life there was much different than either of them had expected.
