Mathias Schack arrived in the Port of NY in December of 1853.He married Katherine Boliver and they had six children: Mathias, Katherine, Michael, Peter, Elizabeth and John.Mathias was a tailor in NY city before moving to upstate NY Lewis County area. Have info from Mathias Sr. to present generations.Exceptions are passenger ship lists, any brothers and/or sisters of Mathias, and a few marriage dates, etc. It has been passed down thru the generations that the name had been changed.We don't know the original spelling.Any help would be great.
