William along with Phebe, Mary, William and Caroline came to the States on the Ship "Marshfield"
"DEPARTURE OF THE MARSHFIELD. -- The Marshfield, Captain Torrey, cleared for New Orleans, April 5, with 370 emigrants, Elder William Taylor, late counselor to the president of the French Mission, being in charge of the company.  Elder Gilbert Clements, late president of the Dublin Conference, sailed in this vessel."

"SEVENTY-SIXTH COMPANY, -- Marshfield, Captain Torrey cleared port at Liverpool, England, bound for New Orleans, on the eighth of April, 1854, with three hundred and sixty-six Saints on board, in charge of Elder William Taylor, who had acted as counselor in the presidency of the French Mission.  Elder Gilbert Clements, late president of the Dublin Conference also sailed on this vessel.  A number of the emigrants were from the Jersey Islands, of the French Mission.
After a pleasant and prosperous passage of fifty-one days from Liverpool, the company arrived in New Orleans May 29, 1854, only one passenger died during the voyage, and two children were born; also one marriage was solemnized.  A number of the sailors declared themselves converted to 'Mormonism,' but none of them were baptized on board, as it had been the experience of former companies, that some of the sailors would get baptized hoping the intimacy with the Saints thus afforded might assist them in their evil designs upon the honor of the young sisters.
A portion of the company proceeded farther on the journey up the Mississippi River, May 31st, on board the steamboat James Robb; the other portion followed soon afterwards on board the Grand Turk.  Both arrived safely at St. Louis about the middle of June, and thence the emigrants continued the journey on three steamboats to Kansas City.
