Doers anyone have any information on the Immigrants voyage in 1856 ? Tradition has handed down that Peter John Karpen immigrated form Antwerp to New York, landing in August 1856. I cannot find evidence of Karpen passengers in German immigrant books during the summer of 1856. After immigration, the family migrated west to settle in Brighton, WI. Can anyone confirm the traditional information and provide evidence of the port of departure, port of of entry, and ship name of the Karpen immigrants ? This would be a major help to all interested Karpen relatives. Merry Christmas to all!
