Information from passenger list;
They crossed on the bark "Christiane", mastered by
capt. Chr. Tofte. The
ship arrived at New York on July 16th carrying 150
passengers. From the
passenger list it looks as if the males and the
females were separated
on the ship. The list gives the names of all the
males first. No. 64 is
Baataal Baataalsen, age 55, - no. 65 is Martin
Baataalsen age 31, - no.
66 is Niels Baataalsen age 24. Then to find Martha
and Karen you have to
jump to no. 140 Karen Baatolfsdatter age 29, and no.
141 Marthe
Andersdatter age 51. The list has the number 772
stamped on it, and that may mean it was the 772nd arrival for 1850 to New York.

original article in Norwegian was from the 1850 Norwegian newspaper
Capt. Christian Tofte intends, in April, with his fast sailing ship "Christiane" to leave from Drammen to New York, if sufficient number of passengers can be committed. This ship, which is 2 years old, 155 long and is in the first class in Drammen's Insurance Company, did a journey in the summer of 1849 with passengers. Those who want to take advantage of this opportunity to America should contact D.E. Dalhl at Honenfos to get additional information.
