Where do you find the German to America books you are referring to? My Peter Nies came to America in Winter of 1849-1850, with his brother John, they sailed from Havre, France to New Orleans. They came up the river to St. Louis soon after settling in St Clair County Illinois. My Peter stayed there for a couple of years then went to St Joseph, Mo for a short time and then on to Sidney Freemont County Iowa. I dont know what village in Darmstadt, Germany he came from. In one history book from Iowa I show his fathers name was Fred and his Mother was Margaret Analt.
That about all I know about him before he came to America.
