Would like to find an immigration record or a passenger list for Edith Scheaffer born in Prussia 1847 immigrated to USA before 1870. Have no idea what port she left from or came into or who she may have traveled with. She lived, married, raised a family and died in Indiana.

If you search immigration databases also look for Schaefer, Schäfer or with pronunciation as a guide Schieffer.

Ancestry has a database for passenger lists, but I don't have access. It appears there is a record for Edith Schaeffer, born in 1847. 

All New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957

If anyone has access and can look this one up - would really appreciate!
