In the spring of 1849, when Agnes was three, her family sailed for America. Cholera broke out on board the ship. Her sister was one of the deaths aboard the ship and was buried at sea. Her family lived at Winter Quarters for two years until they were prepared to cross the Plains with the David Wilkie Wagon Company. They arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1851.

Agnes lived for three years in Iron County where her father and mother were called to help settle. In 1856, Agnes and her family returned north and settled in Riverdale, Utah.

Agnes became the second wife of Sanford Bingham. The two families lived on adjoining lots in unity and with love for each other. Agnes was a good practical nurse. She sewed and was a wonderful cook. She had a cheerful disposition and was always willing to help others. Agnes served as counselor in the Riverdale Ward Relief Society Presidency for many years.

Agnes had many sorrows. She had a daughter die from a sleigh accident and two sons drown the day after Christmas. Her oldest daughter died in childbirth with her seventh child. Agnes took the baby to raise. Agnes never lost her faith in her Heavenly Father.

Agnes passed away peacefully in her sleep. At her funeral she was referred to as an "angel of peace."
