The Fenn family arrived in New Orleans on 13 June 1854 via the ship Germanicus. The oldest son, William Jr., does not seem to have traveled with them on the overland journey. The Deseret News roster lists the family surname as "Ferne" and indicates that the traveling group consisted of four people.
