Thanks for this information but this is not my Mathias Kraker. My Mathias Kraker was born in 1867. I am beginning to think he may have arrived in a different port other than NYC Ellis Island. According to all his records he stated he arrived in 1892. He stated in the census he was from Austria or Poland(depending on the year) He was married to Marija Jaksa in 1888 and I have a death notice for Marija Jaksa(mother-in-law) stating her residence was Semic.
