JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help deciphering the manifest of Moses KUSMANN #general

Jennifer Mendelsohn <jennifer@...>

Hi genners.

I believe the entry for Moses Kusmann on line 37 of the 1887 manifest
posted below could be my great-grandfather Morris Cushman.

The problem is deciphering the name of the town at far right. The same
word is repeated three times below Moses' entry and appears to be
something like Schadowa or Schowoda? The only clue I have is that on
Morris' son's naturalization papers he says he was >from Odessa.

Can anyone help? The JewishGen townfinder suggests Zhadova, but that's
nowhere near Odessa. It's also possible that Moses Kusmann is not Morris
Cushman, but any insights appreciated.
