Amelia, or Emelia, Sailer Poda emigrated to the US in 1856 according to emmigration records she landed in New York on 11/14/856 and she was 29 yrs old. On the same ship was Francis Poda who was 32 yrs old at the time. In fact, there names appear together on the passenger list of the ship Admiral. On the ships records, Francis Poda lists himself as Prussian.
I believe they had a son Francis and lived for a while in New York. Evidently Francis, Sr. died or abandoned the family between 1860? and 1870, because he is not listed on the 1870 NY census but Emelia is along with three children. Eventually Francis moved to Elizabeth and was a butcher, I think.
Francis, Jr. is my grandmothers father.
Don't know if this is of any use to you?
