I am trying to track down family of Sophia Kost or Boettcher.
The family originated from a small town in Germany (or in that day Prussia) called Hohenwarte. They sailed on a ship named Silesia and arrived in New York in November 21, 1884. The ships records indicate show Johann (41 and a farmer), Johanna (38 wife - maiden name Bottcher), Sophie (was 18), Carl(Charles was 9), August(was 7) and Adolph was 4.
The first time the Kost family shows up in Pa is in an 1890 directory. Once Sophia landed in the US, she disappers. She is no longer with the family When did your Sophia come over to the US?
I'm curious if spelling of the last name of Boettcher was changed
