Struggling to find Immigration data for Rosen cousins #poland #usa #russia #canada

Except for the father, Leisar Rosen, I am unable to find immigration/naturalization records for the family.  They came from Russia/Poland, lived in England for several years and some of the family members may have come to the US via Canada.  The information I have is as follows:  The father, Lazar (Leiser, etc.) Rosen b. about 1868-1871, born in Bransk Poland/Russia,  came to the US in 1900 (Ellis Island) - sailed from Antwerp.  That is the only boat record that I can locate.  The other family members came at different times.  Mother: Ida Resnick (Reznik) Rosen (my cousin) born ca 1869-1872.  Children: Jacob Benjamin Rosen b. 1889, John Rosen . 1891 - both born in Poland/Russia.  Sarah/Saide b. 1893, Isidore Albert b. 1895, Anna M. born 1898, Morris/Maurice/Mark (arrived in US in 1906?)  b. 25 Dec 1900 -  all born in England.  Pearl born 20 Nov 1907 in New Jersey.  The family appears together in the 1910 U. S. Census. 
 If anyone has access to records from England and Canada,  I would really appreiate some help. 
A Healthy New Year to everyone.

The Rosens did not enter via Canada.  They entered the US in 1905 at Philadelphia on the ship Haverford,   According to the manifest, they lived in London for three months.  None of the children were born in England.   The family was headed to L Rosen in Union Hill NJ.  Union Hill was a small town in Hudson County  which became part of Hoboken in 1925. 

They arrived 17 July 1905   after being listed (but not arriving) on two other ships in July that were also headed to Philadelphia from Liverpool.   They may not have boarded those previous ships because one of the family members was listed as having trachoma upon final arrival. 

They arrived as Chia (Ida), Jankel (Jacob), Itschok (Isidore), Chana (Anna) and Moshe (Morris/ Mark) .  All born in Russia.

Thank you greatly for your help.  This was terrific!    The Mother's name was Chaia (Chia was a misspelling).  She became Ida in the US and nobody whom I have reached in the family knew yer as anytning but Ida. As you noted, she arrived with four of the children.  Another member  sent me the Canadain arrival lists.  That revealed that the second and third of the children John and Sarah, arrived in Halifax in March1907 and were hospitalized. .  I am  really grateful and awed by all the help I have received from the group.

Thak you very much for your help.  this was terrific!   Barbara Zimmer found the mother's immigration record and sent me the inforation in another response to my request.  The immigration she sent indicated that the family had more than one boat recrod with a health problem.  The final arrival record had the mother arriving with four of the six children.  Your information led me to the Canadian arrivals which showed that tow of the chidlren, ages 12 and 16 arrived in 1907 in Halifax, Canada with a destination of Montreal.  However, it was stamped "hospitalized".   Thanks to both of you, I have now located the immigration records for the whole family!

Thanks.  What you sent was a great help.  Your information is correct.  However, as rumored, two of the dhildren, John abd Sarah, ages 16 and 12,  arrived in Hallifax Canada, and were hospitalized upon arrival in 1907. So now it all fits together. 
Another item from the boat record that was of great help was that the mother's name was Chia, a misspelling of Chaia.  Her descendants who even remembered her name, knew her  her as Ida only. Her great grandmother in Poland, born in the 1830s was named Chaia.
