"Antoinette Marie"

A large group of the passengers that were on the Antoinette Marie left from Bentheim on March 15, 1847. These people were Dutch speaking who lived near the border in Grafschaft Bentheim, Hanover Province in Germany. They then left from Rotterdam by sail on April 4, 1847 and arrived at New York on May 23, 1847. They arrived in Michigan on June 20,1847. It is stated that 70 of the passengers were from Bentheim, and 34 were from the Province of Drenthe in the Netherlands.
