Randy - Yes I beleive we are related as my great grandfather came over from prussia on the first bismark from prussia around 1880 through the new york port. I found the ships passenger list and verified the actual document with his name and relatives that were also on the voyage. Pretty cool to say the least. I can only imagine what he must have thought at a young age of 9-10 to see the statue of liberty for the first time. Like i stated before if I find anything relating to your great grandmother I will forward it ASAP.
Thanks for writing
