Wilhelm Wolf can be found on Ancestry.com arriving New York aboard
the Admiral on 16 April, 1857. He is 16 years old from Bavaria.

The passport application, if it is by the same Wilhelm Wolf, has
mis-remembered ship information, not unusual after 46 years and
little in the way of resources to locate the true details.

I am faced with a problem regarding my
maternal great grandfather, Wilhelm WOLF; I am unsure of the
ship on which he arrived.
Here is what I thought I knew: I found, at
one time, a manifest with his name on it on the ship Admiral
sailing from Havre to NYC arriving 16 Apr 1857. He was born 03
Dec 1840 in Deidesheim, Germany, then a part of Bavaria.
However, there is a passport application for
him dated 11 May 1903 from Newark, Essex County, New Jersey in
which he clearly states he sailed aboard the Wilhelm Tell from
Havre, France on or about the 1st of March 1857.
I cannot find any proof or manifest list,
however, to substantiate this. Any ideas?
