Surnames: Mlsna, Nekola
Jacob and Elizabeth Mlsna arrived
at New Orleans on 13 Dec 1860
on Ship Anna Delius from Bremen, Germany
See attached image of ship passenger list page
Last name misspelled as "Milsna"

I located this record after finding Jacob Mlsna's 12 Mar 1866 Declaration of Intention to become a US citizen in La Crosse County naturalization records (see record in upper left corner of the image at:

The Declaration of Intention recorded that he arrived at New Orleans in Dec 1860 and with that info I was able to find the attached arrival record.

Jacob was issued a federal land patent for 40 acres in the town of Washington, La Crosse County in 1863 (Township: 15-N, Range: 5-W, NW qtr of NE qtr of Section 33 -- that would be east of what is now County Rd PI and about a mile north of the county line).

Jacob and Elizabeth were in Hamburg, Vernon County at the 1870 census with five children (Hamburg is adjacent to and south of Washington, La Crosse County) . Their last name is misspelled as Misner. Elisabeth's parents, Mathias (aka, Matej) and Mary (aka, Maria) Nekola (last name misspelled as Nicolai) were also in the household.

Burial records for the Mlsna and Nekola families are available in La Crosse Library genealogy indexes at

Look there for Matej Nekola, Maria Nekola, Jacob Mlsna, and Elizabeth Mlsna. (Make sure the "Cemeteries" option is checked instead of the Obituaries option.)

Jacob and Elizabeth were recorded on page 20 of the 1880 census at Hamburg, Vernon County, with nine children. The name appears to be written as "Mesna" on the census page ( mangled it as "Meonie" in their index).
