They were accompanied by their son Thomas and his wife Jean Campbell, and their children - David, three and Margaret, one. At Liverpool they boarded the ship "Empress" for the long and arduous voyage across the Atlantic. Conditions were so bad that at one point the ship's officers had to quell a mutiny by the steerage passengers. There was a scourge of small pox and other hardships.
