If you have relatives in Brooklyn, it might be worth your while to search this site:

http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/eagle/

I searched for my ggg-grandfather Robert HAWE, a butcher who came to Brooklyn from Ireland c.1845/46, and found a nice if ghastly article about his attempted murder of a co-worker with a meat cleaver.

Thank you for posting this. I have been to this site before and never found anything, but today you reminded me of it and I was playing around and found the article regarding my ggg grandfather and his gruesome death on the LIRR. the article is wrong, but it was so great to see at least some report of it.

My pleasure - I keep stumbling onto sites that I've already visited (and exited empty-handed) and I'll "dumb it down" and be less rigid over spelling and suddenly I'll find all sorts of new things. I recently found my ggg-grandmother in the Emigrant Savings Bank records under HOWE rather than HAW(E) and it gave me her place of birth in Ireland, the name of her parents, her address, name and profession of her husnband, number of children, and date she arrived in the US and the name of ship she sailed on. It just whets my appetite for more.

(PS - I replied to your PM, but hit the wrong key and couldn't correct my error, so thought I'd just post my reply here.)

Thought I'd post a link to "A Guide to Interpreting Passenger List Annotations," which decodes those cryptic letters, numbers, and other assorted scribbles on U.S. passenger manifests. The guide, which is part of the JewishGen webpage, was written by a historian with the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, which administered the ports of entry into the U.S. Here's the url:

http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/

Scroll down the page and you can click on links that explain individual columns on the passenger list.
