As you can see by the 1860 Census the family was here in 1860. In fact, Magdalena on a later census states she arrived in 1857. The 1900 Census gives the actual month and year of ones birth so you have a few more facts there. Note the various spellings of the names and there are some addresses where they lived. However, over time, as Philadelphia expanded and swallowed up the smaller areas addresses and streets changed, so you may not be able to precisely locate these places.
