Now I  can't say with complete certainty that it is her. I mean,  how can you with only limited signs of proof?.

I have the name and  year of birth mediumly accurate. The birth year for this Maria Seil is 1812.  [9.September.1811.Close enough.
Her residence is Netzendorf which is totally surprising. Since I pictured in my  mind as living in the village of Dahlenburg. But Netzendorf is included in the territory of Dahlenburg. Just as it is in territory of Bleckede.

Note :   Prior to finding this immigration, I had discovered via AIDAauswandereronline that a Dorman family resided at Fladen. Searching their passage from  Fladen  [by Dahlenburg]  through Hamburg I learned that right next to the last Dorman listed on that ship passenger list  was a Johann H. Seil  with birth  year  1842  similar to that of  the Joliet living Johann Heinrich Seil. Ancestor of the Wilhelm Seil author of the author of the book  Sherlock Holmes Mystery of the Titantic. [ See older posts.] He is thought to  have  immgrated 1872.  I'll do a post on these. And there is conflicting name  info as to if it is the Henry Dohrman of Joliet, Will county,  Illinois with Dorothy Seil as wife.
