Thank you very much for the Ellis Island information on my Grandmother Martha Gradrim. I had heard from someone within my family that she had not immigrated through Ellis Island but somewhere else. The reason I know this is my grandmother is 1) yes her brother was August, and 2) the street she lived on is called Paxton Avenus now but very old Chicago Title and Trust records show that street was initally called Grove.
Thank you for the time and effort you spent on looking this up. You provided us information of a time over one hundred years ago when a courageous woman made a decision to come to America and changed all of our lives forever.
