Today’s Tidbit | December 3, 1857

On this day, in 1857, Charles Francois Xavier Voiland, his wife Adelaide, and their children Magdalena, Catherine, Julia, Philomene and Adele, arrived at Castle Garden in New York City. They came aboard the ship William Tell. Charles’ name has also appeared in family records as Jean Baptiste Voiland.  It appears that he used both names.

They eventually made their way to Buffalo, NY. Charles and Adelaide are my 3rd great grandparents. More about my Voiland/Weller family can be read here.
