I'm new to this list, and not even sure it's the correct list for my

Surnames I'm researching are ECKSTEIN, WESSING, and SHUSTER.

My ggrandfather Erhard ECKSTEIN, s/o David and Henriette (SHUSTER) ECKSTEIN,
was a 21 year old cabinet maker from Coburg who sailed out of Bremen and
arrived in New York in Sept 1853 to work for the Steinway Piano Co. He married
Johanna WESSING, d/o George WESSING. I believe they lived in Berka.

Any help would be appreciated. If you prefer to respond in German, I have
friends who can translate.

Thank you in advance.
