Prudence Batley Wiseman

Prudence and her son, George, arrived in New York on 5 July 1866 via the ship American Congress. Though the overland company records only list Prudence, as head of household, the notation showing she purchased 2 adult food rations rations indicate that George was with her during this portion of the journey as well.
