About Liebette "Lisbeth" Rosalie Bornmüller

Lisbeth came with her future husband to America in 1846. They sailed from Bremen, Germany to New Orleans on the Pharsalia. (http://istg.rootsweb.com/1800/pharsalia18461111.html) It was an English ship. The journey took three months and two days. She lived in New Orleans for a very short time, then moved to St. Louis, where she lived for about six months. From St. Louis she moved on to Iowa, where she lived during the winter with her sister, Mrs. Jacob Stoermer.

Her name is spelled a variety of different ways. Other common spellings for her first name are Liebette and Lavetta. Her last name is sometimes spelled Bonmiller or Bon-Muller. Her name is spelled Liessette on the 1880 U.S. Census.

According to death records, she died of apoplexy.

She died at the home of her son August.

(The website above no longer is valid, so an update would be great. I am wondering about Liebette's document of Emmigration, as I have a family document which states that Stephen Christian Schilling came to America with his brother Gottlieb [I know now he is Johannes Gottlieb] in 1847 and I found a record on ancestry.com that supports that information. This document also shows a shortened surname possibility for Bornmuller as Bohr or Bahr, handwriting is hard to read, which makes sense as I found a Catherine or Katherine Bohr that married in Keokuk County. I think this is not the correct emmigration record for her either as I'm sure I found one for her that showed her name as Liebette, not Rosalie, coming with other Bornmuller family members in 1846, arriving in New Orleans.

Stephen and Gottlieb left Port Bremen, Germany on ship Victoria, arriving in Port New Orleans in June 28, 1847, National Archives' Series M 259_27 for both. Port of Departure, Bremen, Germany, Ship Name: Victoria. "Stephan Christ." is listed as a "tinner", can't read what Johan Gottlieb is listed as, looks like one or two letters or some kind of symbol, may mean same or "tinner".

Perhaps Stephen made the trip twice, but seems like a different Stephen me, as he was not likely a physician and being from Suhl, makes sense that he is a metalworker, being shown in the book of History of Keokuk County, Iowa as a tinner. Suhl is known worldwide for metalworking, especially weapons manufacturing there for generations.)
