SHIPS PASSENGER LISTS
Ship Wisconsin carrying Mormon immigrants from Liverpool to New York Sept.9, 1885
On Sept. 9 1885 the Ship Wisconsin arrived in New York at Castle Garden. It carried a large group of Mormons bound for Utah. The New York Times announced the arrival in its Sept. 10, 1885 edition. I have provided a brief excerpt from that issue. Those descended from any of these immigrant Mormons will want to read the entire NY Times clippings for details.
Sept. 10, 1885. Three Hundred Mormons. They Arrive from Europe En Route to Utah. 300 Mormons arrived at Castle Garden yesterday on the Guion Line Steamship Wisconsin
J. W. Thornley was in charge and was accompanied by 13 Elders who had been abroad for 2 years as missionaries
They came from Germany, Scandinavia and England. Many of the immigrants were told at Castle Garden that they could leave the party if they wanted to. Mary Anne Keystone states she paid for passage to Salt Lake City where she has a sister, that she wanted to be put off at Queenstown but was kept on board against her will. She asks to stay in New York and Emigration Agent Hart offers to refund her passage to Salt Lake City if she leaves the party.
There were 'several cripples' in the party, with friends. Among the children were Clara Fox, 5 and David James Gibson, 7. Unless adopted they would be returned to England.
