Passenger Ship Arrivals for the Ports of New Orleans, LA and Galveston, TX - 1847

Alphabetical Index of Passenger Ship Arrivals at New Orleans and Galveston for the year 1847. Ships Rigging and Nationality included, if known. Some ships did have more than one New Orleans voyage during the year, but some ships also had the same name as others, but were different vessels even if they sailed from the same ports. The detailed information should show the difference. This Index was generously shared with TheShipsList by Mr. W.M. Von Maszewski.
Abbreviations used :- NAMP: National Archives Microfilm Publication | Registre Veritas: The "Continental equivalent" to Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, which contains European, British and some American vessels.

The Late Dreadful Explosion. - We had hardly time to announce yesterday morning the dreadful accident which occurred on the towboat Phoenix. We now proceed to give further particulars. The accident occurred at 7 o'clock the evening of Thursday, the 21st inst., at the head of the Southwest Pass. The Phoenix had in tow at the time the British ships Manchester and Ironsides, and the Bremen bark Leontine. All six of her boilers exploded with a terrific shock. The following is a list of the sufferers by this calamity on board the towboat: Mr. James Lathrop, pilot, body not found; Samuel Dill, 2nd engineer; James Lancaster, mate; Henry Hawk, steersman; Charles Smith and John Reckarleff, deck hands; Owen Jones and Martin Boyle, firemen. All the above were killed, and the body of Mr. Lathrop only is missing. John Campbell was severely wounded and brought up and mit 106 placed in the Hospital. Mr. Stephen C. Fisk was slightly wounded. Capt. Crowell, the commender of the boat, was entirely uninjured. On board the bark Leontine the destruction was yet greater. The following were killed on the spot or blown overboard: Caspar Unterbrinck, mason; H. H. Koltbecke, sailmaker; Bernhard Lange, shoemaker; Joseph Dallemagne, engineer; Joseph Meyer, blacksmith; C. W. Pottker, joiner; and Ferdinand Schulze and Anton Knacks, farmers. The following were severely wounded: H. A. Knepper, farmer; Wm. Loren, sailor, of St. Michaels; and Agnes Kollbecke, wife of H. H. Kolbecke, killed. The following were slightly wounded: Anton Stever, weaver; August Ockel, blacksmith; Frederick Holke, brickmaker; J. Subberstedt, joiner, and Joseph Wernkampel, farmer. Capt. Thormann, the master of the Leontine, and two of his crew were slightly wounded. Two of the crew of the ship Manchester were killed. These are all the details of loss of life and of personal injuries which we have been able to obtain. The Leontine has come up to town with 126 German emigrants on board. The explosion made a perfect wreck of the Leontine, and the Manchester is much injured. We do not learn that the Ironside sustained any damage. Of the causes of this accident we have not learned a word which is satisfactory. The boat was considered one of the best on the river; her boilers are less than three years old; and Capt. Crowelll enjoys the reputation of being a cautious, prudent officer. Surely the welcome of the poor German emigrants to our shores has been most inhospitable. We cannot imagine a position more forlorn than that in which they are now placed (The Daily Picayune, Jan. 24, 1847, p. 2, col. 1) Bremen Bark "Leontine," Capt. Thormann. - On January 2 the tugboat "Phoenix" towed three ships from the Southwest Pass upriver, among them the Bremen Bark "Leontine," Capt. Thormann, when suddenly all her boilers exploded. Many individuals were killed or wounded in the accident and the ships severely damaged. On board of the "Leontine" Capt. Thormann and two of the crew were wounded and among the 126 passengers several were wounded or killed. (AAZ, 1847, p. 173 [March 9, 1847]).
