Great Grandfather

Hello,

I'm trying to find record of my great grandfather coming to the USA. His name was Jacob Kayma- B.March 6 1868. I know he lived in Germany. Not sure if he was born there though.

I found a passenger list for his wife, Wilhelmina, and children. They lived in Germany but left from Antwerp Belgium and arrived In New York New York on the ship Zeeland in 1902. The list said they were meeting him (Jacob) in Clearfield PA. I know he was a coalminer there until his death in 1926.

The only way I was even able to identify that it was in fact my great grandmother on this passenger list was by her children. Her name is transcribed as "Kina Kaima" But I believe it is meant to be "Mina".This is the link to it in case you need to see it.

If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.
