Jennifer,

There is an arrival record of Olympia and her baby daughter at ellisislandrecords.org . Have you seen this record? It seems to contain interesting information.

Accordingly, Olympia Golob, age 27 (rather looks like 27 to me than 26 as transcribed), married, arrived in Ellis Island on October 2, 1905, on the ship Vaderland sailing from Antwerp (in Belgium). With her was six months old baby daughter Katharina. Their "race" is stated as Croatian. Their residence in the old country was given as Agram. Agram was the German name of Zagreb, the capital of Croatia (which was part of Hungary at the time.

The two were stated to be on their way to an "aunt" (of Olympia) with the name Mary Schnitzer who lived at 3861 Folsom Street West, in Philadelphia, Pa. The aunt also had paid the fare for the two. Somewhat mysteriously, there is no mention of a husband Frigyes/Fred. There is also a question mark about why she came under the surname Golob (which, according to your posting, was her maiden name), when the arrival record lists her as married as expected.
