The Ship Holsatia

The Matzdorff family, including mother, Sophia Krabbe Matzdorff, and son Sigsmund Matzdorff came over on the Holsatia. This ship was part of the shippling line of Hamburg-American built by Caird & Co, Greenock, Scotland. It had an iron hull. According to the New York Passenger LIsts, they were "between deck passengers." Carl had previously emmigrated to the United States. Now Sophia, Carl (Charles), Augusta, Sigismund (Siegmund), Edward, and Annie Matzdorff were all on the Holsatia.
