Thanks Jean for the Baca information. Nothing there is a fit I think. Since I don't have access to the volumes, I really appreciate your effort here!

I don't know for sure if the Kosmos people are my ancestors, or why the destination was Wisconsin when they ended up in Indiana and Illinois.

These are the only "Pichner" or anything like Pickner listed in manifests I can find, and it's not the right date. I believe they immigrated 1861-1863 as Wenser is listed as Bohemia for birth, all later children listed as US births.

Nothing much about Johan (John) and his family makes a lot of sense. Conflicting names and ages from censuses are confusing. The story goes he was widowed and married Anna in 1867-- if so, who is Anna on the Kosmos?. He dies 1872 she remarries same year.

The surviving spouse (Anna) is entered as remarried and moved to Iowa.
