Texas – Galveston County

From Gowen Manuscript:  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms120.htm

GALVESTON COUNTY, TEXAS

More than 133,000 immigrants disembarked at the port of Galveston, Texas, between 1846-1948. These records begin in 1846, a year after the annexation of Texas by the United States, and this database includes most of the 19th Century passenger lists. The Great Galveston Hurricane of May 8, 1900, submerged the island and destroyed much of the city, including the buildings that housed the immigration rec-ords. There are very few records surviving between 1871-1894. Hurricane Frederick was the deadliest natural disas-ter in U.S. history, killing more than 8,000 people, surpas-sing the Chicago Fire, the San Francisco earthquake and the Johnstown flood combined.
