Although not directly listed in the memorandum book, James (Mary's father) purchased enough food rations for five people. The Wellsville Ward record also confirms that she traveled in this same company with the rest of her family. According to New York passenger lists, the Gittins' traveled from Liverpool to New York aboard the Colorado, arriving 28 July 1868.
While traveling within the company Mary met Calvin Pendleton, a teamster for the company, they later married.
Birth and death dates listed were found in a personal, online family history record (such as Family Tree, Ancestry, or My Heritage), without any accompanying documentation. Further research is needed to verify its accuracy.
