|* Wilhelm Butow appears twice in the records, with different birth dates.|
|* There is no record of Sophia,
who was shown as Carl’s wife in Kay
Scott’s records. She may have died in Prussia or England.
|* The family left from Liverpool England (or Queenstown Ireland).|
|* Gustav Adolph
Heinrich arrived in Australia in 1873 from Margonin via
* Edward Ernst Ludwig Heinrich (Gustav’s brother) went to Liverpool from Margonin (date unknown), but could have been there at the same time as the Butow family.
* Edward’s son Hugo Albert Heinrich came to Australia (need to check
when) whilst his brother Gustav Adolph Herman Heinrich stayed in
|* Re the ship record. The info on Carl and Johan is correct.|
|* "Catherine" has to be Sophia because she was called "Charlotta" on her daughter's death certificate and was called "Charlotte" in another of my family records. That was her middle name. It doesn't take much stretch of imagination for someone to write down "Catherine" rather than "Charlotte". "Catherine's" age is correct, too.|
|* Sophia Charlotte Heinrichen Butow is buried in the Lutheran Cemetery in Freeborn County, Minnesota, USA, next to her husband Carl. She died August 11, 1892.|
* Second, it appears that "Wilhelm" (age 24) is really Wilhelmina...Johan's wife...although why she is shown as a male is strange. I can't read the word following the "M" written on the record so have no idea what it says or means. Wilhelmina was the same age as Johan...24 years old at that time.
|* Louisa was actually 27 when they left Germany and turned 28 a few days after they arrived in New York.|
|* Wilhelm's age (15) is correct.|
* I assume that things were probably quite chaotic at the port when people were being put on the manifest...thus causing a certain number of errors. I am positive this is my complete Butow family and it is confirmation that they all came over at the same time.
