I went to http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellis.html and put in W.
Wilusz and there he was in 1909 like you said:
Wojciech Wilusz, age 16 single, from Korczyna, arrived at Ellis Island on 26
January 1909, aboard the SS Noordam out of Rotterdam. He left behind Zofia
Wilusz in Korczyna, and was going to his brother, J. Wilusz, 112 Leman
Street, Holyoke, Mass.
There was only one other person on this page from Korczyna and he was right
Jozef Korona, age 18 single, leaving behind Jan Korona in Korczyna, and
going to his cousin J. Wilusz, 112 Leman Street, Holyoke, Mass.
So now you have a cousin, an uncle and a brother to check out and another
state too!!! I would also take some time and look at the other pages for
this ship since when my grandmother came at age 16 there was one person
onthe same page from her village but two pages later was her brother-in-law,
and three other people from her same village.
Any more help let me know.
I would also check with the Polish Genealogical Society of CT and the
Northeast since it covers both states! They were so much help to me when I
started this "addiction" many years ago!
