  My Immigrant Ancestor was Pieter 'Struck' (I have found this name spelled so many different ways),at the age of 40 years he arrived with his wife Maartje (age 34) and three children: Cornelis(son age 6 years), Maria(daughter age 3 years), and Arentje(daughter age less than a year old).  They arrived at New York Harbor 28 October 1856 on the ship "JOSEPHINE OF BOSTON".  They left from Antwerp Belgium and traveled in Steerage(between decks).  On the ship manifest Pieter was listed as a Farmer.  Pieter is the Grandfather of MYRA(my Great Grandmother).
