Ignatheus Gette


Andreas Gette and Ignatheus Gette came to the USA on the Kaiserin
Auguste Victoria sailing from Hamburg, Germany, on March 5, 1913, arriving at Ellis Island on March 17, 1913. The long journey led to them being held for Special Inquiry as it seems both brothers were held 15 days for some kind of physical defect, probably sickness.

RMS Empress of Scotland was the later name of SS Kaiserin Auguste
Victoria, an ocean liner built in 1905-1906 by Vulcan AG shipyard in Stettin (now Szczecin, Poland) for the Hamburg America Line. The ship regularly sailed between Hamburg and New York until the outbreak of war in Europe in 1914. At the end of hostilities, re-flagged the USS Kaiserin Auguste Victoria, she transported American troops from Europe to the United States.

For a brief time Cunard sailed the re-flagged ship between Liverpool and New York.

He married Elisabetha Bosz in 1911 in Semenovka, Russia. They had nine children: Malior Ignatius Gette, Marie Barbara Gette, Joseph Leo Gette, Alvina Gette, Henry J Gette, Leona Marie Gette, Leo Henry Gette, Donald Anton Gette and William Gette.
