In Reply to: Johann (b: Oct 1842) & Dorothea Ristau (b: Feb 1840) Germany by Kaye of 60069

The family left from Hamburg on 26 March 1882 aboard the Albingia bound for New York.

Ristau, Joh., aged 39
Ristau, Dorothea, aged 32
Ristau, Joh., aged 16
Ristau, Emilie, aged 9
Ristau, Carl, aged 8
Ristau, Edward, aged 7
Ristau, Fred, aged 6
Ristau, Gustav, aged 5

It gives their place of residence as Holzen (if I am reading it correctly, but perhaps someone else can give a better interpretation).
