Thanks, David.

Yes, it is LPC; seems that there was a speck of dust when they copied to (or from) the microfilm/microfiche.

See these two pages for a description of the markings (https://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/manifests/bsi/ ) and common abbreviations used (https://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/manifests/glossary.html )

Without seeing an image of the manifest, it is difficult to say with certainty.  Are you sure that "JPG" isn't "LPC" (likely to be public charge)?  1140 is the time of the BSI hearing.  Monn is likely the surname of the inspector.

Thanks.

My grandfather's Ellis Island "Cause of Detention" codes are "JPG      1140      Monn".

Any ideas as to what they mean?   He apparently was released the next day.

RR is for "railroad."  In this case, a woman and her daughter traveling alone, it probably means they were released to the custody of the railroad for delivery to the waiting relative.  In some such cases the railroad company was required to return a receipt to the Immigration Service documenting the immigrants were delivered to said relative at the destination.  Some railroad lines employed women "matrons" to ride the trains and accompany groups of women and children "traveling alone" and deliver them at stops along the route.

"RR" means via rail.  See:  https://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/manifests/detained/

1904 NY Detained Passenger list.

The name is given then 1dg. I presume that this means (&) one daughter which would be correct. Then Cause of Detention “to telgth”. From other records below it would seem to mean “to telegraph $ (money). The last confusing part is “Disposition” which states RR to Husb Ellias -address”. The name and address are correct although I believe that it should be son, not husband but RR is undefined. My only guess is something like “Remanded to Relative”.  Anyone with specific knowledge or a better thought?

 Please respond directly. Walter Rosett   <wrosett@...
