The passenger list from a German ship bringing immigrants to America contains a trove of information. According to this list: “Passengers on board the Bremen Vessel Leontine…from Bremen bound to Baltimore Dec. 11, 1833.” The second page gives several people on board who emigrated from the town of Steinfeld. No. 77 is F. Embse (for Von der Embse), from Steinfeld, a baker, age 41, and 78 possibly Agnes, with the same last name from Steinfeld, age 39. Von der Embse, and its variants, remains a common name in this area today after immigrants from Germany braved the North Atlantic so many years ago.
