    Notes 
    • Emigrated to US in 1913 at the age of 27 in advance of his wife Christine and their children Albert and Frieda. The entry register is available at www.ellisisland.org. Karl sailed from Bremen aboard the SS Kleist on 9 April 1913 and landed at Ellis Island in New York on 21 April 1913. He listed his origin as Nowo-Kasimirka, with his nearest relative there his wife Kristine. Karl's sponsor and destination was a friend L. Reimann (?) in Chicago. The same person sponsored Heinrich and Johann Retzlaff, and Gottfried and Martin Drewisch.

      Aboard the same vessel in 1913 was Emmanuel Jesswein, also from Nowo-Kasimirka, Poland. Emmanuel was 17 (therefore *1896), whose nearest relative was his fatherCarol (Karl) Jesswein of Nowo-Kasimirka. His sponsor was his brother Gustav Jesswein of Chicago IL, who was also the sponsor of fellow traveler Michael Schultz (listed as a friend).

      Several men on the boat were from Nowo-Kasimirka, including Rudolf Pede, Ferdinand Schact, Albert Gahl, Johann and Heinrich Ratzloff, Gottfried and Martin Drewisch (?), Gottfried Pilcha, Michael Schultz, and Heinrich Kurtz.
