    • By this time the economics were so bad in Alsace and the political atmosphere was ripe for yet another war that the family decided to get out of the line of fire. They traveled across country to Le Harve, France where they departed aboard the Iowa bound for America. The family disembarked at NYC on May 29, 1839. [4]

    • From [New York City] they would have continued upriver on the Hudson River to the Erie Canal and made their way to Central New York. Caroline was listed as only 7 years old on the deparkation manifest, though she would have turned 8 the following day. They found themselves just outside of Syracuse, New York in a place called Manlius Station (now Minoa), which was heavily settled with others previously come from the same region in Alsace and Lorraine. So they felt at home among people of like language and customs. However, they did not tarry long as they once again went across the water, this time Oneida Lake, and settled in Oswego County where 4 more children were born. [4]
    Residence  1847  Vienna, Oneida, New York Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    • In 1847, after the last of the children were born, the family bought a 100 acre farm in the Town of Vienna, still on the north shore of Oneida Lake. The only Catholic Church in the area at this time was in North Bay, but this was actually closer to their home than Cleveland, where St. Mary's was built later. [4]
