Thank you so much for this. Certainly more than ideas, but an actual direction to follow. I was unaware that Utah had such a large German ancestry library. Have you ordered microfilm from the website you sent me? Sorry for my ignorance but what does LDS stand for?
As for the immigration I believe the immigrated the same year their daughter was born in Hamburg, so 1855. They came to Logan Township, Perth Ontario Canada. That daughter that would have been on the ship with them would have been Elizabeth. All subsequent children were born in Canada.
