Sophia Hindman 1851, New Albany, Indiana
Looking for info on Sophia Hindman.
She was born 1851 on "the boat" immigrating to America from Germany.Her mother died giving birth and was buried at sea.Her father is known to be a sailor and he gave Sophia to a family in New Albany, Indiana to raise her.The father came often to visit her then one day he never returned.
I do not know if Hindman was Sophia's maiden name or if it was the name of the family that raised her.
If this sounds remotely familiar, Please contact me.I have hit a brick wall and would greatly appreciate any and all help.
