The Swenson family arrived in New York on 24 July 1866 via the ship Kenilworth. As head of household, only Morgan's name is listed on the overland company roster. However, the record shows that he purchased four and a half adult food rations for that portion of the journey, which would have been enough for he and his wife, his mother-in-law, and his children to cross the plains with him.
His travel to Utah is also mentioned in the obituary of his daughter, Augusta.
