Looking at the manifest itself and seing the endorsment of [probably the US
authorities, them havonmg together 7 dollars on them and going to the
husband that already lives at 1685 Lexington Ave.,
I would say the boy was alive and possibly well on arrival.

which suggests some wealth, ccntradicting the only 7 dollars.

So most probably the husband/father had been in Grodno 6 + 9 = 15 months
before their arrival.
