I wonder if your John Ulrich could have been a brother to my Friederich J. Ullrich, who was b. in Prussia c. 1817, and sailed to Baltimore in 1873 via the "Smidt " with wife Evaline and two daughters, Mary and Ernestena. They settled in Abingdon, Harford County, MD. A son, Frederick William Ullrich, had come over around 1869, and settled in Chase, Baltimore County. Friederich and Evaline apparently had a total of thirteen children, but I haven't found any of the others.
