Helen Ann Moir
Helen Ann Shaw,
Helen Ann Dickson
The Shaw family arrived in New York on 6 July 1866 via the ship Arkwright. The ship manifest shows her surname as "Shaw."
Although only Jane is listed on the overland company records, as head of household, the notation that she purchased 2 1/2 adult food rations indicates that the rest of the family was with her for this part of the journey as well.
Helen Ann came to Utah with her two children, Jemima and Charles. She is the daughter of Jane, and her travel to Utah in 1866 is confirmed by the obituary of her mother. Her husband, Charles John Moir Sr. came to Utah in 1867 with an unknown pioneer company.
Her death date is confirmed by the inscription on her gravestone in Canada which shows her name as "Helen A. Shaw Moir"
