Alois Metz and in 1904 Walburga Sinzinger came to America.
The Vaderland was build in Clydebank, Scotland in 1900. She was 580 feet long with a beam of 60 feet. She displaced 12000 tons and carried 1162 passengers.
In WW-I she became the English troop ship Southland, her original Dutch name sounding
too similar to the German 'Vaterland'. She survived being torpedoed in
the Aegean Sea on September 2nd, 1915 by German U-boat U-14, but on June 4th, 1917, she was sunk off the coast of Ireland by two torpedoes from the U-70.
