"SIXTY-SIXTH COMPANY. -- Falcon, 324 Saints. The ship Falcon, with three hundred and twenty-four Saints on board, under the direction of Elder Cornelius Bagnall, sailed from Liverpool, England, on the twenty-sixth (or twenty-eighth) of March, 1853. After a successful voyage she arrived in New Orleans on the eighteenth of May. Four children died during the voyage, but the general health of the company was good. From New Orleans Elder John Brown, the Church emigration agent at New Orleans, accompanied the Saints up the river. They landed in St. Louis May 27th, and re-embarked for Keokuk the same day, arriving in the latter place in the beginning of June."
