I am searching for descendants of Ferdinand Appelfeller and his wife, Paulina Unbehaun Appelfeller, and their daughter, Agnes Helma Appelfeller.
Born in Unterhain, Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, Thüringen, Germany, they emigrated to America in 1852.They arrived in New York City aboard the Nord America on June 10, 1852. They were listed as follows:
