You don't indicate whether you checked the transcription of the manifest
only or if you looked through each page of the manifest for a name that
might have been his. Very often transcriptions are inaccurate. You
should also be aware that although you have a date for the ship's
arrival, he could have arrived in a different year or different month or
on a ship whose name was similar to the one he put on his petition.
