Richard and his family traveled with his wife's parents, William and Ann Foster, and other family members. They all traveled overseas on the ship Arkwright, arriving in New York on 6 July 1866. Though only the heads of household are listed on the overland company's record (William, in this case), the number of adult rations of food purchased by William, is a good indication that all of the family members that made the trip by sea, also traveled together in the overland company.
Birth date is confirmed by his death certificate.
