Joseph Georg Alstadt followed his wife, Angelica, to America from Weisenborn, Hessen, Germany, in 1882. In 1880, Angelica decided, without hesitation, to leave Germany when a neighbor, who was visiting her father, announced, “I and my family are leaving for America soon, does anyone here want to go along?”

Angelica and her 1-1/2 year old baby, Clara, joined her neighbor's family and came to America via steerage. They landed at New York and eventually settled in Erie, Pennsylvania. A year and a half later, Joseph Georg joined them in Erie.
