    Notes 
    • Her name was originally "Clerc," and there is a Clerc family in Romagny-sous-Rougemont records. Later, she was “Claire.”

      A note by the transcriber of the immigration record says that "Rhame family may also have ties to Romagny-sous-Rougemont." This is where the couple’s children were born. A number of other passengers on the ship were from this small area. This area is in the Alsace region of France (near the upper Rhine); now it's in the township of Rougemont-le-Château, Territoire de Belfort in Franche-Comté.

      This seems to be her family arriving on 17 May 1828 in NYC from Le Havre, on the SS Henri IV:  Louis Rhame, age 54; Francoise, age 44 (parents, presumably, though her name doesn't match Anthony's mother in the marriage record); Antoine, age 19, Louis, age 17; Francoise, age 11; Mary Ann, age 9; and Francois, age 4.

      From the St. Louis Catholic Church Archivist:  21 June 1836 Antonius Ram, son of Ludovicus (Ludwig or Louis) and Maria Francesca (i.e., Françoise) Claire and Victoria Rusch, daughter of Joseph and Maria Gangloff marriage performed by Fr. Alexander Pax, no witnesses given.
