One of the Groups that eventually came to settle in Zeeland Michigan in 1847 came aboard the barque “Princess Sophia”. They left Goes, Province Zeeland, Netherlands for Rotterdam and then went to sea from Hellevoetsluis on May 11, 1847. Arrived at New York on the Hudson river on July 6, 1847. The group is all listed as coming from Germany, but they were all from the Province of Zeeland.
