The Whitworth family arrived in New York on 6 July 1866 via the ship Arkwright. Though the Thompson company records only list the head of household, it also indicates that Jeff purchased 6 1/2 adult food rations for the journey, indicating that his family continued with him on the overland journey as well. PEF records also confirm they made the trip with him.
