Good Morning Kim
I took a look at the Ellis Island website,, and this
is the closest William Howes I could find within the years you gave.
First Name: William
Last Name: Howes
Ethnicity: English
Last Place of Residence: Norwich
Date of Arrival: Nov 08, 1906
Age at Arrival: 30y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Teutonic
Port of Departure: Liverpool
Manifest Line Number: 0027

This man was traveling with wife, Sarah. They do not list anyone they were
traveling to meet, but list New York as the destination.

Always remember that the information remembered by our ancestors could be
off by several years. Have you tried fining his Intent to become a citizen
or his Citizenship declaration? This will be at the County Court House in
the Recorders Department.

Happy New Year to the Ships List
