Translation Request - possibly Lithuanian? # translation

The following is a page from the Passport of Sima Weinstock and her three children who left Lithuania in 1905, sailing from Liverpool to New York.  
Upon arrival, Sima was hospitalized and subsequently died.
 
The handwritten portion appears to be written in a language other than Russian. 
I am able to recognize the names and ages of the children: Abraham 10, Schifra 12, and Mera 8.

A translation of the rest of the information, both printed and handwritten, would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

The stamp has a date of June 4 1905.  The upper portion of the stamp says that it was stamped in Libava, which refers to the old name of Liepaya/Liepaja in Latvia, a major Russian Empire port at that time.
