  • He arrived first in New Orleans; then he moved to St. Louis, Missouri, where he started his business; later he moved to New York

    Thank You I already checked this document; what I am more concerned about, is his name before he became Ernest, he might be called Anees or Anis, so I really need his full name, especially his father's name, which I can't find anywhere (online).

    It will be great If I can find any information about his trip from Damascus to Jamaica at somehow between 1898-1900, later his trip to New Orleans
