- Joachim and Louise, with their daughter Wilhelmine, and Joachim's parents Christian and Sophia, left Hamburg, Germany on 7 July 1875 on the maiden voyage of the SS Wieland. Built by A Stephen & Sons, Glasgow, she was purchased on 16 June 1874 from the Adler Line, which never sailed her, by the Hamburg America Line. The iron-hulled 3,507 gross ton ship was 375 feet long and 40 feet wide. Beside two masts rigged for sailing, her engines, single screw, and single funnel could produce a speed of 13 knots. The Wieland held 90, 100, and 800 first, second, and third class passengers, respectively. After a stopover in LeHavre, France, they sailed on to New York City, passing through Castle Garden on the tip of Manhatten on 21 July 1875. Castle Garden was the immigration center from 1830 until Ellis Island opened in 1892. On the way, daughter Anna was born. This was the third of three immigrations of the Christian and Sophia Kubbernuss family to Berrien County, Michigan. Sources:
