My name is Edward Schilling. I am looking for information in Saxony for my ggrandfather, Friedrich Schilling. I have a pretty good family tree in the USA, but I am not able to find him in Prussia. Germans to America lists a Friedrich Schilling as sailing from Bremen aboard the "Bremerhaven", arriving in New Orleans on 28 Oct 1852 with a destination of Missouri. This coinsides with my ggrandfather's marriage in Perry County, Mo. in 1858. He came to join another group of 600 Saxon Lutherans who immigrated in 1839 under the leadership of Martin Stephan, pastor of St. Johns church in Dresden.
