My g-g-g-grandfather was Joseph Kinstley who came to America in 1850 from Bavaria.
He arrived in the US from Rotterdam, Netherlands aboard the ship, Rhein, on 2 Aug 1850.
Joe was listed on the ship's passenger list as:
Joseph Kunstler, age 32, male, butcher
He served in The War Between the States in two units:
Co. C, 36th Regt, MS
Co. K, 8th Regt, MS
He was naturalized in 1852 in Lauderdale Co., MS.
He gave his DOB as 1 Jan 1830 on his naturalization papers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
