Immigrant Trunk


I was fortunate enough to obtain the trunk my great-great-grandfather's sister used on her voyage to the United States ca. 1870.

Her destination was Keokuk Junction, "Ills" [Illinois]. The railroad stop is now the village of Golden, Adams County, Illinois.

Altje Goldenstein Schuster was a sister to my ancestor Foche Goldenstein who also immigrated to Adams County, Illinois about the same time.

There is a little more about the trunk on our site here:
