Here is the URL on Rootsweb's freepages:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~maryross/ships/rogerstewart18540525.html

(be sure to copy and paste the entire line of this long URL)

TITLE: Vessel name: Ship Roger Stewart
Port of Departure: Le Havre, France
Port of Arrival: New Orleans, Louisiana
Date of Arrival: 25 May 1854

(source: National Archives & Records Administration, Film M259, Reel 40, list 224)

553 Wulfer Johann 33 Suisse M
554 Wulfer Secunda 26 Suisse F
555 Wulfer Caroline 5 Suisse F
556 Wulfer Albert 1/2 Suisse M

(Let me wonder out loud if the above names have the Long "S" or the "S-Zett" character, and have been mis-transcribed)

560 Wilser ferdinand 29 Suisse M

561 Wilser Monika 25 Suisse F

565 Wilser Jacob 35 Suisse M

572 Wilser Simon 35 Suisse M
573 Wilser Madeleine 40 Suisse F
574 Wilser Niclaus 4 Suisse M
575 Wilser Martin 40 Suisse M
576 Wilser Théres 36 Suisse F
577 Wilser Augustin 5 Suisse M
578 Wilser Peter 13 Suisse M
579 Wilser Catherine 10 Suisse F
580 Wilser Carl 1/2 Suisse M

This list has three Wilsers separated by other passengers, then the final list beginning with Simon.

But go to the page itself and read the introduction! It has some explanations that may prove valuable.

New forum members, please note: I am *NOT* a Wilser researcher, simply sharing what I can find because the names are in my spouse's line.

Best wishes,

Marjorie Wilser
