- The Dumröse family arrived in New York City on 22 April 1885. Their point of entry was Castle Garden on Manhatten, the precursor to the more famous Ellis Island. The record lists Ludwig, Henriette, Edward, Alwina, Mathilde, Juli, Ida, and Metha, and their point of departure as "Rosinhoff, Prussia". Most likely, this was "Rosinenhof" (54.429816 North, 17.693481 East), a very small community about 32 km (20 miles) south southwest of Lauenburg. In 1905 the population was just 27 people, and the Lutheran parish was Krampkewitz, which is now Krepkowice. When I searched the civil records (Oct 1874 through 1900) for Krampkewitz in 2009 (at the Slupsk archive), the only Dumröse was Albert.
The Ludwig Dumröse family boarded the SS Suevia in Hamburg, sailed to LeHavre, France, and then on to New York City. The Suevia was a 3,609 gross ton ship, 360 feet long with a 41-ft beam, one funnel, two masts (rigged for sail), iron construction, with a single screw and a speed of 13 knots. Built by Caird & Co, Greenock, Scotland, the Suevia was launched for the Hamburg America Line on 1 June 1874. Between 1869 and 1889, the Suevia made a regular circuit: Hamburg, LeHavre, New York, Plymouth (England), Cherbourg (France), and Hamburg. The Suevia could carry 770 passengers: 100 in first class, 70 in second, and 600 in third. Sources:

||Mroch, Otto Karl August - 1883 - Birth Certificate|
The 1883 Cook County, Illinois, birth certificate for Otto Karl August Mroch, son of Karoliene Mroch and Ferdienant Mroch. The record indicates Karoliene's mother was Henreette Domres. This record has some intriguing places of birth for Caroline and Ferdinand, but the hand writing is difficult to decipher.
