Burden: 276 Ton
Master: Tully Crosby

The Southerner carried the founder of the Holland “Kolonie” Albertus C. Van Raalte and his family, along with several others. On September 24,1846 the group left the wharf at Arnhem and took a Rhine boat to Rotterdam. From there they left by canal Voorn to the sea on October 2,1846. Arriving at New York on November 19, 1846. They left New York for Albany by steamship, then took a canal boat to Buffalo. They then left on November 27, 1846 to cross Lake Erie on the way to Detroit Michigan. Most of the group stayed the winter in Detroit while the men worked. A small number of the group went to the “Kolonie” on February 9, 1847 and stayed at the “Old Wing Mission” in Fillmore Township.
