Transcriber's note: Whoever made the list wrote the luggage of each group or individual in the column "Number and Name of Passengers who have died on this voyage." That person also indicated which people were traveling together as a group or perhaps roomed together, by means of a written brace. The transcriber has inserted a blank line after each such group. No. 12 and No. 73 were the only people who were traveling alone.

Nos. 25 through 29 are the transcriber's ancestors

(25) Gottlieb Heinrich Heidenreich, b. 26 Apr 1795 in Huellhorst, Westfalen, Preussen; death date and place unknown as of 06/2004
Married (26) Anne Marie Charlotte Kottkamp, b. 08 Aug 1792 in Huellhorst, Westfalen, Preussen; death date and place unknown as of 06/2004
Marriage date: 01 Sep 1816
Children of the marriage (all born in Huellhorst, Westfalen, Preussen):
Anne Marie, b. 13 Jan 1819, d. 09 May 1887, St. Clair County, IL
Married 12 Aug 1836: Christian Friederich Heinrich Knefelkamp, b. 1816 in Behrendorf, Prussia
d. 28 May 1862 in St. Clair County, IL
Children: Caspar, Charles, Christian, Henry, Anna, Katharina
(27) C.H. is Caspar Heinrich Heidenreich, b. 27 Apr 1820, d. 17 Jan 1893 in Millstadt, St. Clair County, IL
Married: the widow Christine Meiers, nee Rutter (or Ruetter) and assumed legal guardianship of her 4 minor children
Children: Louise, Friederich, Heinrich, unnamed boy (stillborn)
Anne Catherine Luise, b. and d. 24 Jun 1822
Anne Sophie Marie Charlotte, b. 08 Aug 1823, d. 01 Sep 1823
Christian Friederich, b. 30 Nov 1825; death date and place unknown as of 06/2004
Married: Louise (maiden name unknown)
Christian and Louise were found in the 1850 census, just two families away from Gottlieb and Mary in the Belleville Prairie, St. Clair County, IL, but not in any other censuses. According to the Rieso family history (see below), the Heidenreich family came to the US in 1847, and "their soldier son" came later; we are assuming Christian Friederich was the "soldier son."
(28) Louisa is Anne Marie Louise Charlotte, b. 21 Jul 1828; death date and place unknown as of 06/2004
Married 17 Mar 1849: Heinrich Linne
Children: Lina
Anne Cathrine Marie, b. and d. 30 Jun 1833
Anne Catharine, b. 18 Aug 1834, d. 13 Mar 1837
(29) Mary is Anna Catherine Maria Sophie, b. 17 Mar 1849, d. 05 Sep 1909 in Smithton, St. Clair County, IL
Married 20 Aug 1851: Gottlieb Friederich Rieso b. 07 Feb 1826 in Buende Herford Minden, Prussia,
d. 18 Nov 1911 Smithton, St. Clair County, IL
Children: Augusta, Louisa, Heinrich Gottlieb, Henry George, Maria Catherine, Emma, Maria Helene, Anna, Karolina, Caroline
According to the Rieseo family history, the Heidenreich family stayed in a St. Louis hotel (except for Caspar, who hot-footed it over to St. Clair County to look at land) for a month because the mother, Anne Marie, was ill. While there, Mary met Gottlieb Rieso, who was an accountant for the hotel, and they fell in love. The family left for St. Clair County, and shortly thereafter, Rieso left his position at the hotel and hired out in St. Clair County as a farm laborer until he found Mary.
Anne Cathrine Marie, b. and d. 30 Jun 1833
Anne Catharine, b. 18 Aug 1834, d. 13 Mar 1837
