Piehl's to Milwaukee Nov. 13, 1871 from Neu Stuer, germany
Thanks to all the great posts on the Piehls of Milwaukee and Neu Stuer I have found the Passenger list which contains most of the Family. Of course they traveled in style via Steerage Class.
They made the trip from Germany (need to find if it was Hamburg or Bremen), on the SS Batavia, which arrived November 13, 1871 at the Castle Garden processing center in New York. The Batavia, (Cunard line), originated in Germany, but came from Liverpool, England via Queenstown, Ireland.
Magdalena Piehl (without Adam Wilhelm Piehl) age 56
with Wilhelm Piehl- 23, John Piehl-19, Carolina (male)-17.
Fritz Piehl -35, and Sophia Piehl (Lisetta Gabel)-33 traveled with little Ann Piehl aged 8 (my great-grandmother), and even smaller Ida Piehl- 9 months. (William was born after they got settled in Milwaukee in 1873)
And what cracked the case: (found list under Sievert)
Wilhelm Sievert-31 with his wife Fredk, (which is Friederike Louisa Dorthea Piehl!)-29, son August Piehl-6, and Drothen (female)-3.
Missing on the list was Wilhelmina Sophia Magdalena Piehl, married to Johann Kuenn in 1864 in Germany. She was born in 1839.
And one other family of Piehls I have not fit into my Family Tree:
Wilhelm Piehl -27, with wife Johann Piehl-32, Johanna Piehl-11, and another infant Frdrk - 6 months.
My Great Grandfather August Kressin married Anna Piehl, and then married Ida Piehl. And to make it more interesting, Emilie Hinzpeter who was August Kressin's mother (and was widowed from Carl Cressien/Kressin in Germany), married, (1884), Frederick Piehl after Lisetta died in 1879.
I found the passenger list at Ancestry.com, NY Passenger Lists 1851-1891, November 13, 1871, Batavia, Image 4 of 10.
I had actually gone to the library and scanned every ship from October 15 to December 10th. However, I was using the National Archives film which ends on November 13th, 1871. I was given a fancy automated projector which did not go all the way to the end of the reel, so I never saw the "Batavia" arrival on November 13th! Once I made the Sievert connection, I just searched Ancestry.com, found the page, and realized I had finally hit gold.
