The company records indicate that Stephen came in a traveling group of six. It is uncertain exactly who those individuals were. He arrived in New Orleans on 5 April 1852 via the ship Ellen Maria. On that ship's passenger list, after Stephen's name is listed Henry Woods, Sarah Brown, and Fanny Woods. Henry and Fanny were Stephen's siblings, so they most likely were part of the six. It is possible Sarah was part of the group as well, but further research is needed to identify the remaining two people in the group.
