"ALBATROSS"

             Vriesland Michigan settlers were among the passangers listed on the ship “Albatross”,
             which left the Netherlands on June 1,1847, arriving in New York on July 12, 1847,
             with Captain was Dryn Hazenoot. The group first left from Koudum, Friesland,
             Netherlands on April 21, 1847 on the “North Holland” and arrived in Amsterdam
             on April 22, 1847, where they waited to depart for New York on the “Albatross”.
             Records show that the VanLente family financed their trip with a promisory note.
