    Seeking record of child's death other than ship manifest

    Linda Day-Emerson Newbie

      When my Irish Ancestors came to the US (1853), only 4 children, ages 4-16, were listed on the Ship's Manifest. No accompanying adult was found. It was noted (on the manifest) that one child died at sea during the voyage (Ireland to New York). Is there a place this child's death would be recorded other than on the manifest?
