If the family lore has it correct that the Christiansen family came over via Cunard Line, then the research at present (2006) indicates that the likely Cunard Ships would be either the Samaria, the Gallia, the Marathon, the Algeria or perhaps the Olympus. These five appear to be the ones in service with Cunard from Liverpool to either Boston or New York in the months of May, June and July 1881.
