Passenger List of The Richard Cobden, New York City, 1849

Charles Dobie : HISTORY

Passenger list of the Richard Cobden,
New York City, August 24, 1849

The Richard Cobden docked in New York City on August 24, 1849, from Liverpool, England. There were 261 names on the passenger list, including two stow-aways, and including six who had died en-route.

I transcribed this list because my great-grandfather, William Currie Dobie, was on it as a 10-year-old, with his family, plus an aunt, uncle and several cousins. See his account of the voyage which he wrote in 1914.

Note: Diarhoe -- This term had me baffled, but I sent a query to Rudy's List of Archaic Medical Terms. Rudy replied: "Diarrhea was spelled Diarrhoea back in 1849 so if you lose an "r" and the "a" there's your term."
