AMERICA



Two Ships both called “America” came into New York harbor about the same time. One was listed in the 1887 Zeeland, Michigan celebration as a Michigan colony settlers’ ship arriving May 24, 1847. The other is listed as arriving June 24, 1847, whereas the archives show that another ship did arrive in early May. It is likely that the earliest one is the colony ship. Both lists are shown in this grouping.
