The Kettle family (consisting of three siblings) arrived in New York on 24 July 1866 via the ship St. Mark. As head of household, only William's name is listed on the overland company roster. However, the record shows that he purchased three adult food rations for that portion of the journey, which indicates that his sisters, who were with him on the ship, continued with him across the plains in the Scott company.
