    nd a tenant from Oberjohnsdorf #8, a legal son of the dead Johann Schling
    er who had been a tenant at Oberjohnsdorf #104, and his also dead wife, Th

    The following information is contained in "Germans to America: Lists of P
    assengers Arriving at U.S. Ports," ed. by Ira A. Glazier and P. William Fi
    lby, Vol. 17, November 1865-June 1866 at p. 133: a W. Popp (age 41, ma
    le and a farmer) came with his wife, Rosalie (age 40), son, Joseph (age 1
    4) and daughter Anna (age 7) on the ship "Thatcher Magoun" which came fr
    om Hamburg, Germany and arrived in New York on January 6, 1866. Als
    o, it notes that a J. Schlinger (age 33 and a farmer), came with his wif
    e, Theresia (age 30), Johanna (age 7), Anna (age 5) and Theresia (age 3
    ). From this passenger log, it appears that the Popps and the Schlinger/S
    lingers came over on the same boat from Hamburg. In addition, from the la
    yout on the manifest (which was written as passengers deboarded rather th
    an placed in alphabetical order), it appears that the Schlingers walked o
    ff the boat immediately following the Popp family.

    According to genealogy notes compiled by Dorrain Petron, Theresia's fir
    st husband, John Schlinger/Shlinger/Slinger, reportedly died in St. Clou
    d, Minnesota. His date of death is not known and it is not known wheth
    er Theresia was living in St. Cloud at the time; however, it should be not
    ed that it appears that Theresia married Wentzel Popp in Illinois, indicat
    ing that she did not live in Minnesota prior to her marriage to Wentzel (s
    ee paragraph below). No death record has been located on John Schlinger (
    under any spelling of the name) in St. Cloud or any of the surrounding cou

    After John's death, Theresia married Wenzell, who then appears to have ado
    pted her two living daughters, Anna and Theresia. Because Wenzel and Rosa
    lia Popp had a daughter named Anna Popp, Theresia's daughter is referr
    ed to as Anna Schlinger Popp. Both Anna's grew to adulthood and marrie
    d. It appears that baby Theresia died as an infant or small child (as s
    he does not show up on census records of 1875 or later).

    It appears that John died prior to 1870 as Wenzell Popp had married Theres
    se when the Joliet, Will County, Illinois Census was taken:

    - Joseph 20 Laborer "
    - Anna 13 "
    - Anna 3 "
    - Theresse 4/12 "

    According to Chuck Arnold, "Apparently the 2nd Anna is not the Anna SCHLI
    NGER that was on the ship list [of the Thatcher Magoun] but a younger on
    e. POPP adopted her and she is also listed in Minnesota censuses before h
    er marriage to Mr. COENEN. The elder Anna, Joseph's full sister, marri
    ed Henry RIFENRATH. He died and she took the kids for a time to a relati
    ve in Blue Island IL."

    According the the 1880 Census for Morrison County, Minnesota, Theresia Po
    pp was the head of her household with three children living at home. Ther
    esia was listed as 42 years of age, and her home country, as well as th
    at of her parents, was listed as Bohemia. According to the census, her ch
    ildren at home were: son, Francis (later referred to as Frank Jerald Po
    pp in other records, and listed as Wenzell Popp on his birth certificate
    ), age 9; son, Edward, age 5; and daughter, Mary, age 2. Theresia's occup
    ation for the 1880 Census was listed as "Keeping House."

    nd was classified as a farm.

    The 1900 Census provided that her son, Edward, was born in June of 1875, w
