Colonist's Ships - 1840's and 1850's
Back Home Next

The Castro column indicates that it was a ship arranged by Henry Castro and the number.  (Some entered Texas at Galveston or New Orleans and then sailed to Indianola)  Links are to scanned and transcribed passenger lists.  Many were transcribed by the County Coordinator, Margaret Meyer Simpson, from copies obtained from the Texas State Archives in Austin or from microfilm at the Clayton Library in Houston:  (They include immigrants to Medina County as well as other areas)  (handwriting is difficult and my translation from French may have errors)

(printing a copy of  a scanned page for your personal use is permitted)
