Thanks for your help.

I now have "firt papers" signed by Wilhelm Weibel showing he left The port of ____? on March 25 1851, arriving in US on May 25 1851 his allegience was to The Republic of Swiss and that he intended on settling in Indianapolis IN and becoming a US citizen. There were signed in the Superior Court of marion County, Indianapolis IN on 12 OCT 1858. However the clerk could not find any papers like this.

He married in Wayne Co IN, and lived in Daviess Co IN.

I thought I found him on a ship in New Orleans in 1851. I'd love some more help if you have time.

YES I believe it is. Thanks for helping me. The people listed with him are family names I have also. Should I order the reel and if so what will it show?

Surnames: WEIBEL
Many of the passenger ship lists vary as to details and information. Generally, they give the name, age, gender, and sometimes the relationships (son, daughter, wife, etc.).
Some will list their occupation (laborer, farmer, miner, shoe maker...).
Some will be specific as to the town or village they come from. Some will mention the number of pieces of luggage they have (if at all) and then they'll mention destination - some lists will just write U.S.A. or they will mention a state or city in the U.S. There is a column too, if a passenger died at sea. I don't know if there are any hard and fast rules for these passenger lists from what I see. In the early 1900's, the form becomes more generalized and much more info. is available & standardized.
I would get the photocopy with all of the Weibel family on it. They may all be listed together and sometimes not.
Page one of the Passenger manifest will have the name of the Master of the Ship, where he's from and his signature. Some will mention the type of ship (Bark, Steamer, etc.) and they'll write the shipping line company name and list the gross tonnage of the ship. The passengers listed on page one generally are those who have been able to afford a cabin. Others are placed in steerage, poop deck, saloon, etc.
Those are all the variables I can think of.
Good luck!
Kathleen
