Rebecca Wakefield, writing from Milan, Ohio, to the New England Emigrant Aid Company, stated that her husband had settled in Kansas in May 1855, but had gotten sick and was now unable to pay for she and her three children to join him. She sought assistance from the company to finance her trip to Kansas.
