occupation: farmer (?)
immigration: Arrived in USA (port of New York), Sept. 5th, 1839, with wife and four children, aboard the ship "Republic". From New York City went to Buffalo, NY. In 1840(?) he came to Milwaukee, and then in 1841 moved to Freistadt.
records and documents:
The history of Freistadt 
lists his town of birth as "Rammsburg",
Cammin, Pomerania, Prussia. However,
Meyer's Gazeteer  lists a town
kreis Cammin, and
I believe that is the correct
town and German spelling (the area is now part of Poland).
