Dear Denay Howard,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Baltimore, Maryland Customs Records and Vessel Passenger Lists, 1820 - 1898 in the Records of the U.S. Customs Service (Record Group 36), but digital images have not been added to the catalog yet. Therefore, we searched on Ancestry and located a passenger list record for a Carl F. Schuler and Maria Christiana from Germany who arrived in Baltimore in September 1839. To view the original records, please contact the National Archives at Washington DC via email at email@example.com or you may view the digital image on Ancestry although there may be a fee.
We also located the series Passenger Lists, 1820 - 1897 in Record Group 36, but digital images have not been added to the catalog yet. Therefore, we searched on Ancestry and located a passenger list record for a Manie B Kuhr arriving in New York on August 12, 1833. You may view the digital image via Ancestry for a possible fee or the original records at the National Archives at New York City. You may view the records in Ancestry at one NARA's facilities for free via ALIC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/.
We also suggest that you could begin by searching for Lorenzo’s birth certificate/birth records in Ohio and death records in Indiana. Either could list a parent. FamilySearch has an Ohio, County Births index, an Ohio Births and Christenings index and an Indiana Death Index. We located an Indiana death record on Ancestry that may match up with a Lorenzo Shuler. Unfortunately, it does not list his parents.
We suggest that you request a copy of John and Lorenzo Shuler’s Compiled Military Service Record (CMSR). CMSR contains basic information about the Civil War soldier's military career and consist of an envelope (a jacket) containing one or more cards. These cards typically indicate that the soldier was present or absent during a certain period of time. Other cards may indicate the date of enlistment and discharge, amount of bounty paid him, and other information such as wounds received during battle or hospitalization for injury or illness. The soldier's place of birth may be indicated; if foreign born, only the country of birth is stated. The CMSR may contain an internal jacket for so-called "personal papers" of various kinds. These may include a copy of the soldier's enlistment paper. The CMSR rarely indicates battles in which a soldier fought.
The CMSRs are in the custody of the National Archives at Washington, DC (RDT1). Please contact RDT1 via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. These records are also available on ancestry.com for a fee and/or familysearch.org for free.
Lastly, we searched the Catalog and located the series titled Regimental and Company Books of Civil War Volunteer Union Organizations, 1861 - 1867 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762-1917 (Record Group 94). Please contact RDT1 for possible records of the 11th Infantry Regiment.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck on your family research!
