I am also a Karpen relative.
Wilhelm->Peter John->Hilary (Hilarius)-> John Peter->Maureen (my mother).
Does anyone have any Passenger List info. for the Immigrants ?
Also, I am curious as to Prussia being listed as a place of birth. As I look at the maps of old Germany, Prussia is on the far eastern portion of the country. Yet, Trier, Rittersdorf, and Luxembourg are on the opposite end (west) of Germany.
Any thoughts ?
I would be glad to fill in blanks for people.
Hopefully we can help each other.
