Treasure Chest Thursday - James Richman Passenger List

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to open the treasure chest of family history records.

My latest immigrants to the United States are James Richman (1821-1912) and Hannah (Rich) Richman (1824-1911) of Hilperton, Wiltshire, England.

James Richman came first, on the ship Calhoun, departing from Liverpool in England, arriving in New York City on 22 October 1855. The record summary from is shown here:

Here is the first page of the ship manifest of the Calhoun (captured and shown in order to document the ship's name, the departure and arrival ports, and the column headings):

James Richman is on page 4 of 4 of the ship's manifest:

James Richman is listed as age 34, male, a laborer, a citizen of England, he wishes to be an inhabitant of the USA, and he came in Steerage.

Listed immediately after James Richman is Samuel Richman (age 22, male, an engineer) - this is actually his brother-in-law, Samuel Rich, son of John and Rebecca (Hill) Rich, and brother of Hannah (Rich) Richman.
