Germans to St. Louis

St. Louis was the destination for many German immigrants. Many ships departed from Bremen and arrived in New Orleans. The passengers then traveled up the Mississippi to St. Louis.

This is a partial list of the passengers on the bark, Mississippi, which arrived in New Orleans on 3 November 1856. The names, ages, and occupations of the passengers are listed, as well as the names of the villages or cities of origin.

Ed Mochel transcribed and contributed this information for publication in the 1999 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 32, number 2, page 62.
