Mappy Monday - Westward Passage

Mathias Roesch sailed from Baden, Germany with his family, arriving at Castle Garden in New York on May 26, 1857 after 46 days days at sea..  This was the journey they took by train to reach Potosi, Wisconsin where they lived and farmed.  (Ellis Island should read Castle Garden on the map)
