• General History. At age eighteen, Sabina married Azra Matson Adams, who was nine years older. They made their home in Canada, where four children were born. They converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Azra was called on a mission for two years. When he returned the family emigrated to join the Saints in DeWitt, Missouri. They were soon surrounded by mobs and driven to Far West then Quincey, Illinois. Here, after putting in a good crop, Azra again went on a mission to Canada. He returned in June, 1840.
The Adams family moved to Nauvoo and built a home which they moved into in August, 1841. They built a cabin on Madison Island in the Missouri River, where they lived awhile, before moving back to Nauvoo. They built another home on another lot.
In 1843, Azra left on his third mission, to North Detroit for six months. When he returned, they leased a farm just east of Nauvoo. When the Prophet Joseph was killed, they heard the shots. After the death of the Prophet, they moved back to Nauvoo.
In 1846, Sabina and family traveled 300 miles across Iowa, settling in Pottawattamie. In 1849, they left Winter Quarter in the Orson Spencer Company, arriving in Salt Lake City, September 22, 1849. In 1850, they moved to their last home in Lake City (American Fork), Utah. Azra left on his fourth mission to Green River.
