SPÄTH: Otterstadt Bavaria>Ontario? 1852

Hello, I have no SPÄTH relations, that I know of, but I do have a tidbit for you. In 1852, 30 Families left Otterstadt Bavaria together in a Mass Emigration. There was a SPÄTH family on board as follows: Joseph SPÄTH, day laborer, with wife and 6 children: Barbara, age 14; Maria, 12; Johannes, 9; Martin, 6; Elisabetha, 4; Veronicka, 1/4. Ship "ARTHUR" sailed from Bremerhaven to Quebec. Many families from this trip settled in Ontario, some of them emigrated again to other parts of the USA and Canada.Information comes from the Catholic Church Diocese Archives in Speyer, Germany. Hope this helps someone. Debbie, Tallahassee,FL
