Mr Josef Arnold-Franchi, 25, was born on 24 March 1887. He was a farmer who lived in Altdorf, Kanton Uri, Switzerland. He was married to Josefine Arnold-Franchi (Josefine Franchi).
From their relatives of New Glarus, Wisconsin, they recieved in 1912 two prepaid tickets (number 31441 and 31442, all together 445 Swiss francs) from the agent: Im Obersteg, Basel. With those tickets they got their final ticket, number 349237, price: £17 16s.
The couple had a son, Josef, born on 9 December 1911. They did not have enough money to take him to America as well, so he was left behind with his grandparents.
