I am related to Olga Hammes, one of Philipp and Charlotte's daughters. One of the census says she arrived 1857. Our oral history is that she came around the horn.
She is my Grandmother's (Olga Nicholson Bowman) Grandmother. My great great, I guess. Please see my public tree for info. I will post photo of her ASAP.
Olga Hammes married Edward Wenzel in San Francisco. I know more about the Wenzels than the Hammes.
