Der Mr. Stuhlfaut,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the Access to Archival Databases (AAD) and located the Data Files Relating to the Immigration of Germans to the United States, documenting the period 1850 - 1897 in the Records of the Center for Immigration Research (Collection CIR) that includes 1 file related to Jacob Stuhlfauth and 8 additional records for individuals with the family name Stuhlfauth. The manifest identification number for Jacob Stuhlfauth (00031918) suggests that he arrived in New York.
Next, we searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Passenger Lists, 1817-1897 (Microfilm Publication M237) of vessels arriving at the Port of New York in the Records of the U.S. Customs Service (Record Group 36) that may include the lists for the ship that Jacob Stuhlfauth arrived on. These records have not been digitized. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at New York (RE-NY) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
