The Jenson family arrived in New York on 16 July 1866 via the ship Kenilworth. As head of household, only Christian's name is listed on the overland company roster. However, the record shows that he purchased three and a half adult food rations for that portion of the journey, which indicates that the family members who were with him on the ship, continued with him across the plains in the Scott company.
