"Ninetieth Company" . . .They cleared the port of Liverpool on the 28th and sailed on the 30th of November 1855 with 350 souls on board.  Only a little sickness prevailed on board except the ordinary seasickness.  On the 26th of December a heavy sea caused by high winds drove in a part of the bulwark, rent a sail or two, and caused considerable confusion.  The same evening two children died.  Three couples were married on board.  On the 29th of December the Emerald Isle arrived in New York, and the emigrants were landed in Castle Garden where some remained for a few days until they found houses to live in, and the brethern obtained employment.  Some of the emigrants continued the journey to St. Louis and other parts of the West, and in due course of time most of them reached the valleys of the mountains.
