Hi Bob,
23 year old Christian Rick made his way to Whiteside County, IL in July of 1870. I'm assuming his ship either landed in NY where he may have taken a train to the midwest or his ship may have docked in Louisiana and then he came up the Mississipi River to Illinios. Actually though I'm not sure where the ship arrived or for that matter where it left from in Germany. I'm hoping to find some ship passenger lists of as many German emigrants from 1870 as I can and hopefully I will come across Christian Rick's name. He did also travel with his brother Mathis Rick but all I know about Mathis is that I've read that he died when he came to America. I'm not sure if it happened during the trip or when he arrived in Whiteside County, IL. I haven't found any death records on Mathis.
