Germans to Hawaii, 1883-1887


I am again looking for information about individuals from Hannover who might have gone to Hawaii around 1883. I believe there were three or four ships who carried them to the islands. I had this information a long time ago but seem to have misplaced it. Now I am looking for a family by the name of Goedicke/Goedecke.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
