"ELEVENTH COMPANY. -- Tremont, 143 souls. The ship Tremont sailed from Liverpool January 12th, 1842, with one hundred and forty-three passengers, mostly Saints, bound for Nauvoo via New Orleans. This was the first company that sailed in 1842.
Under date of Sunday March 27th, 1842, the Prophet Joseph records:
'I witnessed the landing of one hundred and seventy English Saints from the steamer Ariel under the presidency of Lyman Wight; also about three thousand dollars worth of goods for the Temple and Nauvoo House.'
These must have been the passengers who crossed the Atlantic in the ship Tremont, and perhaps some that emigrated in the Chaos two months previous. It is likely that Peter Meeling the leader of the Chaos company, pushed through with only a portion of his people, and that others waited somewhere on the road to come on to Nauvoo with the Tremont passengers."
