Not much is known of this Swedish sailing vessel, than that she was built in Gothenburg in 1839, and that she was one of the few vessels that sailed emigrants directly from Sweden to the United States, sailing from Gothenburg to New York in circa 1855.

I found her on a Norway emigrant web-site which did give, and I believe she is the same vessel..

13 May 1849 sailed from Skien to New York under command of Capt. I.C.Pettersen with on board 121 passengers, arriving in New York on 02 July 1849.
