You are correct. Town name is clearly spelled in the manifest as Kodell.
What is amazing is that two different scribes have been working on the
manifest on November 29, 1913 when your relatives have arrived in Ellis
Those scribes have managed to distort everything they could: the surname and
first names of your relative and town name.
Perhaps all went wrong since this particular day fell on a Saturday.
Town should read: Chodel, pron. [khoh dell] and place is located 20 miles
WSW >from Lublin.
