Anyone know anything about Everhard Ludwig Fromke? I sure didn’t until discovering his name a few days ago in the Castle Garden database. Given he shares my mother’s surname, I am interested to learn what I can. He arrived via the ship Sophia at Castle Garden in New York City on August 19, 1845. According to the ship manifest he was born around 1819 and hailed from Lingen in the province of Hanover, Germany. He was a bookbinder who planned on settling in St. Louis.
