Seeking advice concerning dominant transportation routes for immigrants from Cornwall to Mineral Point, Iowa Co., WI. My immigrant ancestors were Henry Nichols/Nicholls and his wife, Elizabeth Richards. Henry immigrated from Gulvall, St. Ives Parish, Cornwall in 1848. He settled in Mineral Point initially. In 1848, he sent for his wife, Elizabeth, and their 7 children. They moved to a farm in British Hollow, Grant Co., WI where they lived for about 7 years. In 1855, the family moved to Eagle River, Keweenaw Co., MI where Henry was employed as a miner at the Central Mine. In 1856, he was the first casualty at Central Mine when he was killed in a mining accident. He left behind his widow and 7 children. I'd like to be able to track down the name of the ship he sailed on as well as the one that brought his wife and children a year later. I read elsewhere that some ships came through Quebec and stopped at Grosse Ile which was the quarantine station. Then they made their way through Sault Ste. Marie to points south. Does anyone know how the majority of Cornish miners arrived in Mineral Point? Any info. is appreciated! THANKS!
