I am trying to find the name of my great-grandfather's uncle whose farm was my ancestor's destination when he left Mothern, Alsace, France, in 1850, sailing from LeHavre on the S. S. Callender, into the port of New Orleans. He worked for a while in that port, so would have arrived in Indiana in 1850-1852.
ancestor's name was Francois Joseph Schlosser. His uncle's last name would
likely have been Schlosser, Stupfel, or Bechtel. I don't know the area of
Indiana, but suspect it might have been Dearborn County, because of other
Alsatian ancestors who settled there (the Maffeys, the Mayer/Meyers, among
ancestor eventually settled in Covington, Kentucky.
Any help would be
