Peter Laugel and Joseph Bey (b1810) immigrated from Alsace Lorraine in May of 1837, on the barkentine "Mogul", a three masted ship sailing from LaHavre, arriving at New York City in June of 1837. The towns of Alsace (France/Prussia) from which they came includes the place names of Strausbourg and Mommenheim. Their destination was the "Illinois Country". Joseph Bey had married Sophia Sher in France before coming. Peter Laugel married Hester Bailies (Bayliss) 12/31/1838 in Indiana. Joseph Bey died. His wife and son are listed in the 1840 census. Peter Laugel is also listed in the 1840 census. Peter's wife, Hester, died. Peter Laugel married Sophia Sher Bey. Peter and Sophia were the parents of Elizabeth and Sophia Laugel.
Research into Castle Garden immigration records show that Andrew Laugel also arrived on the "Mogul" with Peter Laugel and Joseph Bey. It is very possible that Peter and Andrew are brothers. The exact date of arrival of the Mogul was June 20, 1837.
