Interesting situation.

While I can't speak to any knowledge about this specific situation, elsewhere in the US there were situations where someone was given passage to America in exchange to work. They were known as indentured servants. It would seem that he would have been able to offer quite a bit of work to another family with the extra money for passage but knew they'd need the help to get started in a new country.
