From"The Britzius Story" by Dianne Z. Stevens 2013:
Catharina Britzius (b 1810- Bisterschied, Pfalz) married a man named Johann Schnell
Per Britzius file III p. 4 "On the ship 'Leopard' arriving New York 6 July 1840, departing Europe from Le Havre, were Jacob Britzius born 1788, Catharina Britzius born 1813, Jacob born 1820, 'Dewold' (Theobald) born 1821, and Lisbeth born 1823. . . Jakob Britzius lost his wife, Katarina Elizabeth Schwartz, in Bisterschied in 1838. Two years later he emigrated (we learn from above record) with four of his children including 20 - year old Theobald, who later married Christine Elizabeth Maurer. . .also young Jakob Britzius, 16, who later married Catherine Wasem. The ship's record lists the family as coming from 'Bavaria.'"
