"The Klipfels made the voyage to the new world on the same vessel in which Mr. (Martin) Boehm crossed the Atlantic. There were fifty in the cabin and nearly all came to Ohio, settling in Columbus. They left Germany on the 2d of April and arrived in the capital city of this state on the 22d of July (1846)." -- article on George Boehm, in "Centennial Biography of the City of Columbus and Franklin County", pages 690-691.
