Joseph Johnson

The 1862 Hamburg ship manifest shows his parents' and siblings' surname as "Johansen," but his name is listed as "Joseph Johnson" on his death certificate and gravestone. 

Note that his death certificate shows his birth date as 5 October 1853.  The inscription on his gravestone shows the dates of his birth and death as 1852-1931.  Further research is needed to determine which year of birth is correct.
