[Copied from The Sloopers, Their Ancestry and Posterity by J. Hart Rosdail]


An official passenger list for the Sloop Restoration has still not been
found. This is in spite of extensive research by both the author and
previous historians, in the archives of New York, Washington, and elsewhere.
However research does seem to confirm the following 50 names out of the
traditional list of 53 carefully compiled by Anderson in 1895.

1.Lars Larsen Jeilane [Lars Larson]

47.Niels Toresen Brastad [Nels Thompson]
48.Ole Olsen Hetletveit [Hetletvedt] [Ole Olson]
49.Lars Olsen Helland [Lars Olson or Lars Helland]
50.Peder Eriksen Meland

There are three people remaining on Anderson's list: Sven Johannessen who did
not immigrate; Andrew Stangeland, who came with Cleng Peerson in 1824; and
Knud Anderson Slogvik, who probably came in 1829.

[The above reference to Anderson may be Rasmus B Anderson's The First Chapter
of Norwegian Immigration [1821-1840] Madison, Wisconsin, 1906

Speculation about who the 3 remaining passengers were, led the author to
suggest possibly Knud Anderson Slogvik may have been on the boat after all
and one couple which returned to Norway in 1826 and their names forgotten
which stems from a statement made by Sarah Richey to a local newspaper in

A fine by New York Customs stated 45 passengers [excluding an infant born on
the trip] and a crew of 7, etc., etc..]

I thought perhaps this was the best way to eliminate many messages about
ancestors who are not on this list.
