The Muir family (Mary Bell Muir and her five children) arrived in New York on 6 July 1866 via the ship Arkwright. The overland company records list only Walter, the oldest son, as head of household, but the notation that he purchased 5 adult food rations indicates that the rest of the family was with him for that part of the journey as well. The account balance on the PEF record confirms this.
