    Notes:

    German spelling/translation of name: Johann Carl Müller.
    The passport application is for John Charles Mueller.

    A post at my blog discussing JC Mueller and explaining more of what I know.

    Immigration:
    Family legend has both John Carl and Louisa arriving (separately) in 1867, and being married in 1872. No supporting documentation has ever been found.

    In September 2009, I located his 1889 passport application that verified his immigration information. He traveled on the Westphalia from Hamburg.

    In the passport application, John says he immigrated on or about 28 Aug 1867. The Westphalia wasn't launched until 1868. There is a passenger listing on the maiden voyage arriving 28 Sep 1868 for Johann Müller, age 22. I think that's the right person.

    John married Louisa Friederike Wilhelmine SCHIRMER 29 Mar 1872, Coxsackie, Greene County, New York, USA. Louisa (daughter of Johann Friedrich SCHIRMER and Katharina Margarethe Rebecca SCHRÖN) was born 5 Mar 1849, Wünschensuhl, Thuringen, Germany; died 14 Oct 1914, Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA.

  2. 5.  Louisa Friederike Wilhelmine SCHIRMERLouisa Friederike Wilhelmine SCHIRMER was born 5 Mar 1849, Wünschensuhl, Thuringen, Germany (daughter of Johann Friedrich SCHIRMER and Katharina Margarethe Rebecca SCHRÖN); died 14 Oct 1914, Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA.

    • Immigration: Bef Mar 1872, United States

    Notes:

    Immigration:
    Search for passport application for 1905 trip to Germany with Tillie. That should lead to her immigration petitions. Should search for her petition while searching for JC Mueller's.

    2013 09 01 - Located the following information at Ancestry:

    New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Louise Schirmer
    Name: Louise Schirmer
    Arrival Date: 24 Jun 1871
    Birth Date: abt 1849
    Age: 22
    Gender: Female
    Place of Origin: S Weimar
    Port of Departure: Bremen, Germany
    Destination: United States of America
    Port of Arrival: New York, New York
    Ship Name: Main

    I'm not certain this is the correct person, but the age and departure info are pretty close.

    I think that's probably her. There's a Bertha Müller, age 19, also from South Weimar. That would be a very interesting coincidence. I don't think there's a connection though. I want to get the full manifest for more information, including departure port and date.

    Notes:

    Married:
    There is no information known on J. C. Mueller and Louise Schirmer and their life or years in the State of New York. We have only the family tradition of their marriage in New York, but nothing can be verified nor documented concerning how long, when, or why they were in New York. Other than the fact that Louise Schirmer's sister was living in New York, presumably about the time that Louise came to the U. S., there is no evidence nor documentation of their having been in New York.

    According to family tradition, as indicated in the Mueller Chronology by Carl Edward Bock, both came in 1867, when J. C. Mueller was 20 and Louise Schirmer was 18. This appears logical enough, and it would be easy to accept this as a fact, except there is no documentation to back up the date. This also leaves the years between 1867 and 1872 unaccounted for. It is difficult to believe that there would be no record nor evidence of where they were for the five years in advance of their marriage in 1872. Furthermore, if they were in the U.S. in 1870, neither name has been located in the 1870 census.
