Not always Ellis Island

My Messing family came in through Ellis Island, but I could never find my grandfather, Jacob.  I knew he came to the U.S.; I even had newspaper articles reporting his suicide in Central Park!  

But by sheer accident, I found him coming in in Galveston,TX.

My message:  don't overlook the other ports of entry.
