This is a picture of "De Oude Haven" (or old port) in Rotterdam, Holland (Netherlands).  This is where our German ancestors departed for Cowes, England and later for Philadelphia, PA.
This is a view looking NW from the Port at Bingen on the Rhein.  This is a likely port where our German ancestors set sail on their voyage down the Rhein to Rotterdam, Holland.  Bingen is about 20 miles North of Katzenbach.
