  • Balthasar Weiler and Anna Walter, accompanied by Gottlieb Weiler, departed on 18 May 1853 departing London aboard the United States square-rigged sailing vessel American Eagle (899 tons, carrying 520 passengers, master Richard H. Moore). Passage was originally booked aboard the Prince Albert, to depart London on 5 May, but she apparently was delayed returning to London and did not depart for New York until 24 May.

  • She was interred at Oakwood Cemetery, Niagara Falls, Niagara County, New York. Also buried at Oakwood in 1862 in the same lot was John Weiler, likely infant son of Anna and Balthasar, indicating that she likely died of complications of childbirth.
