The O'Neil family arrived in New York on 23 June 1864 via the ship The General McClellan. Mother and children are all on the overland company roster as well. Father, John O'Neil, also traveled to the Valley, but it is uncertain when he came. He may have come just ahead of them, but he was not with them for the overseas journey and is not listed on the overland company roster with the rest of them either.
