New Homes in a New Land: German Immigration to Texas, 1847 - 1861. Ethel Hander Geue. (1970) 166 pp.
A sequel to A New Land Beckoned, New Homes in a New Land is essentially a compilation of information gleaned from the passenger lists of ships that arrived at Galveston between the years 1847 and 1861. It also continues the story of the German immigration to Texas during this formative period of Texas history.
From all sources researched the compiler located a total of 105 passenger lists, compiling therefrom this master list of 5,600 German immigrants. Information regarding age, family, residence in Europe, name of ship, and dates of departure from Germany and arrival in Texas is included in this list, as well as the name of the county in Texas in which the immigrant settled. In addition to the lists of immigrants, this work includes a brief history of German immigration to Texas together with the names and a description of some of the Germans who were in Texas before it was a Republic. New Homes in a New Land effectively brings the story of the German immigration to Texas up to the time of the Civil War.
