I recently wrote about discovering a manifest for the husband of my grandfather's aunt, which said he was going to his brother-in-law, Leibish Diamond. But interestingly, there were four other individuals on the same page who also listed Leibish Diamond as their destination. At least 3 listed him as a relative; one has a relationship that I cannot read.
Motel Landsman, a 28-year-old butcher, said that he was going to his brother-in-law L. Diamond, and that his wife Ester was his closest relative back in Europe. My grandfather had said that one of his father's sisters (therefore one of Leibish's sisters) was Esther! I know know her married name and that her husband came to America. The question then became, what happened to Esther? Did she join her husband in America?
