The following SPAETH family was aboard the ship PENNSYLVANIA when it arrived in New York (Ellis Island) from Cuxhaven, Hamburg, Germany on 17 October 1908.All family members were US Citizens, but the manifest did not say from what part of United States.
John SPAETH m 46 M baker Minna SPAETH f 46 M none Wilhelmina SPAETH f 17 S none
also as passengers on the same manifest page were William KOCH m 69 baker Francisca KOCH f 44 none
Possible relations to the above SPAETH family???It just seemed peculiar that 2 bakers would be listed on same page.
Ellis Island recorder transcribed surname as APAETH for John so be aware of that as a possibility in your searches. Or it may have been just a typographic error.
