Steve Gold ( asked (summary) which ports were used
besides New York in the 1875 - 1890 period.

Unfortunately he didn't mention where his ancestors settled. If it was
Detroit (Steve's location), Boston is probably the most likely U. S. port.
However around half of the immigrants to Chicago and Mid West states,
including Detroit, arrived through Quebec or another Canadian port.
Quebec arrival passenger lists >from 1865 are available on microfilm;
however they are not indexed and not all are legible. Also a few ships
sailed directly to Montreal and those lists are lost.
