4 September, 1837

Charlotta Phillipina Roedenberger Heick

Charlotta's passport
was issued on 4 September 1837. It shows she was in France in 1838. She came to the United States in 1838 with her daughter Catherine, age 3, to look for her husband, Carl Joseph Heick. Carl had come to the United States with Charlotta's sister.

I was able to get most of the information translated on the passport.

Charlotta was 39 years old when she applied for VISA. She was 5 feet tall, had brown hair, blue eyes, a round face and chin, and healthy skin. Her daughter Kathrina was 2 1/2 years old as recorded on the passport. The passport was signed by the Kings Commissioner in the village of Frankenthal and authorized her to travel around France. The fee for the passport was 24 Kreugers.

She must have gone to France to look for her husband Carl Joseph Heick. It is documented that later in 1838 she came to search for him in the United States and that he had run off with her sister.
