I.6.2 Ellis Island immigration

Georg Friedrich Eduard Huthsteiner had been the first of the Westphalian families to emigrate to the US. It is unclear when exactly he reached the US, but in the records of New York a Hutsteiner, who does match his age, was recorded who arrived on 6th of November 1848 with the vessel SS Washington. His wife Caroline, together with her sons Gustav and Heinrich, daughter Lina and baby Amelia, who was born on the sea while travelling, arrived with the ship Monterey on 27th of September 1848 and was recorded on Ellis Island. I.e. Edward’s family arrived more than a month earlier. Quite uncommon.
