The Hodgson family (Henry and Mary Hodgson and 9 children--two of which born on the ship) 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, the number of adult rations of food purchased by John is a good indication that all of the family members that made the trip by sea, also traveled together in the overland company.
