* 1847 Immigration: C. H. Blöcker (Shoemaker, age 37) immigrated to America with his brother the US on the bark Desiree and Tully from the port of Hamberg, Germany, arriving at the port of New Orleans, LA on 27 June 1847, with the stated destination of Iowa. It is curious that on the passenger list, of the Desiree and Tully, he is not in line with the Blocker family but is instead in line with Anna M. Schraman 24 (who appears to be travelling alone) in between several large families. I could find nothing on Anna in Iowa.
* 1849 Naturalization: Carsten Blooker, a native of Holstein, appeared in front of James Thorrington, Clerk of Court 25 Sep. 25 1849 and became a Naturalised Citizen of the US on 01 Nov. 1852 (in Davenport, Scott Co., IA). These are the same dates for his brother.

Note 1: This is the same district that our Hinrich "Henry" Christian Frederich Blöcker was living in 1850. It appears that he went to Missouri shortly after his arrival in Iowa in 1847, then returned to Iowa by 1849, and then went to Kansas.
Note 2: Dorothy is not with the family in 1870.
