And it appears the Maria departed from Rijeka (Fiume) Croatia Name: Mária Murcsán Arrival Date: 6 Jul 1913 Birth Year: abt 1890 Age: 23 Gender: Female Race: Roumanian (Romanian) Port of Departure: Fiume Port of Arrival: New York, New York Ship Name: Ivernia Former residence Szeklyhidas next of kin father Arva GILGOZ Destination to Youngstown OH to husband Janos She does not appear to be wealthy as she had $8 with her and Ioan had $20 with him... not an exceptional amount of money for the day... Not many of these immigrants really wanted to come to the US... but the economic opportunity was better than in Hungary.
So the business... would appear to be farming?
Torda is now Turda located 185.1 miles NW of Bucure?ti
Szèkelyhodos, is now called Hodo?a 164.1 miles NNW of Bucure?ti
Janos and Mariska are both Hungarian (Magyar) spellings, which would have been common in Transylvania vs their ethnic Romanian names.
Also Mariska's manifest indicates that Naturalization was applied for 1940 at Cleveland INS District ..... but I don't find her listed... at least not under the surname as shown anywhere in this posting
