Hello Ms. Seligman,
I was able to confirm on our finding aids the arrival dates of the Graf Waldersee arriving in NYC on 4/27, 6/8, 8/29, and 10/11 in 1901. Passenger and Crew Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York , NY, 1897-1957 has been digitized on ancestry.com and familysearch.org. The Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934 are available on ancestry.com and familysearch.org as well. Unfortunately, it may be possible that the ancestor’s petition has poor information? I would look at the passenger list in the years on either side of 1901 as well.
I found Morris Tekotsky’s naturalization petition is listed 2 Jul 1912 (pg. 85) in the Southern District of New York, New York County Supreme Court Naturalization Petition Index, 1907-1924. You may request New York naturalization records from the National Archives regional location in NYC.
