Pages of the manifest of the Skjold containing the Boßeckers
I have identified the folks in the first shaded area as:
J. Bosacker 29 Male Farmer
This would be Johannes Boßecker [1816-1896].
L. do 23 f ~
This would be Louisa Rahel (Thomin) Boßecker [1823-1898], Johannes's wife. I think the "do" stands for "ditto" and the ~ acts as a ditto under "male"; thus f ~ is "female".
C. do 5 f ~
This would be Johannes's oldest daughter, Antonie Caroline (Bosecker) Kirsch [1841-1884].
L. do 3 ~
This would be Johannes's son, Ludwig (Louis) Gustav Friedrich Bosecker [1843-1901].
F. do 2 f ~
This would be Johannes's daughter, Elisabeth Friederike Bosecker [1845-?]. This is the last record I have found of her.
M. Tomin 47 f ~
This would be Johannes's mother-in-law, Margarete Elisabeth (Hegewald) Thomin [1799-1856].
C. Bosacker 72 f ~
This would be Johannes's mother, Henrietteella Karoline Marie (Della Torre) Boßecker [1775-?]. This is the last record I have found of her.
The 3 people between the two shaded areas appear to be people from Veilsdorf, Germany also.
I have identified the folks in the second shaded area as follows:
P. Bosacker 44 ~ Miller
This would be Peter Boßecker [1802-1857] 44 male Miller.
M. do 36 f ~
This would be Peter's wife, Margareta Barbara (Schmidt) Boßecker [abt 1805-1865].
C. do 19 f ~
This would be Peter's oldest daughter, Caroline (Boseker) Benz [1827-1887].
M. do 13 ~
This would be Peter's son, John M. Boseker [abt 1831-1862], who was killed at the Battle of Shiloh.
C. do 11 ~
This would be Peter's son, Charles Frederick Boseker [1834-1900].
H. do 8 ~
This would be Peter's son, Henry Boseker [1838-1913].
C. do 4 ~
This would be Peter's son, Christian Boseker [1841-1900].
F. do 2 f ~
This would be Peter's daughter, Fredricka (Boseker) Bensman [1843-1900].
C. Bosacker 37 f ~
I believe that this is Johannes's sister, Christine Hedwig Eva Barbara (Boßecker) Ruckert [1806-?]. The age
is off by a couple of years but the following children's age match the age of her children.
Christine was divorced from her first husband, Johann Georg Ruckert after the birth of her daughter
Dorothea. The last two children were born illegitimatly; however the first is noted to be the son of
Michael Metzger in Veilsdorf Parish Records.
D. do 15 f ~
I believe this is Dorothea Renate Ruckert, Johannes Boßecker's niece [1831-?].
M. do 10 ~
I believe this is Johann Martin Metzger, Johannes Boßecker's nephew [1835-?].
E. do 4 f ~
I believe that this is Elisabeth Christiane Boßecker, Johannes Boßecker's neice [1842-?].
These last three people appear to be the children of Johannes's sister Christine. I have no
further record of any of the children or her after this passenger manifest.
