Does anyone have any information about a Carl Ingman b 1824 Finland who was a sailor. He married a Mary Murphy in 1856 under the name of Carl Richard Francis in Liverpool, England, leading us to believe he may have been married before. He uses the name Carl Engman on the ship list of the Braganza in the 1861 Liverpool census. He lived in Jersey City, New Jersey from 1866-69, moving to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1870 where he died as the result of a fire in August, 1873. His death certificate lists him as Charles Francis Augustus Engman. Family lore has it that he spoke Swedish and grew up in a parish or town called Kurkijoki on a very large lake (Ladoga?).
He said his father was a customs official on his 1856 marriage certificate.
