Ship "Marion"

August 1839 passenger list

Please let me know if you find a passenger that is an ancestor of yours. Thanks, Harold A Ralston.

Down to notes on source and accuracy of transcription.
To List of Ship Marion passengers who settled in Argyle, Illinois.


Notes: Underlined words in document heading were hand written on form to fill in the blanks as was all the passenger information.
This passenger list has columns headed by; " Names, Age, Sex, Occupation, The Country to which they severally belong, The Country to which they intend to become inhabitants, Died on the voyage."
All passengers were shown as belonging to the country of Great Britain and intending to inhabit the United States. None were listed as having died on board. Therefore, only the first four columns are shown below. Except that I have added a line number column to the left.
