Frederick Johnson

I seem to remember that we had some corresopndence earlier.
My ancestor in Australia Hinrich ( Henry) arrived here in May 1853 aboard the ' Monumental City' ex San Francisco. All passengers were gold seekers heading for the Victorian goldfields.He was in Hamburg in 1851 and presumably travelled to the US
then reached San Francisco via a. Overland b. around the Horn c. across the isthmus at Panama. as the Monumental City was launched in Baltimore in 1851 and sailed around the Horn, doing a couple of trips San Francisco to Panama before departing to Australia ( wrecked after arrival)I suspect that he reached San F by either B or C. Henry was a seafarer as were the whole family for many years working out of Hamburg. If you can help me in any way to gain access to his movements it would be of great help to me.
I have written a family History from about 1690 but naturally many aspects still elude me. If any othe Sinn's can identify with the seafaring Sinn's in Hamburg I would very nuch like to correspond.
