Passenger Manifest with Yiddish Actors #yiddish

In searching for the ship that brought Moses HOROWITZ (Yiddish
playwright) to New York in the mid 1880's, I came across the following
famous actors headed for the Yiddish theater on New York City's
Lower East Side:

The S.S. Alaska, Arrived >from Liverpool September 27, 1886
Passengers included
KESSLER, David (age 27)
MOGULESKO, Sigmund
BLANK, Lazar (Leon)
other actors and musicians, and in some cases, their families.
However, it did not include Moses Horowitz.

If members are searching for Yiddish theater personalities arriving in
America about that time, I would suggest seeking out the above manifest.
