It's interesting what you wrote about Theodore traveling alone. I wonder if it is the same one? I know theodore is a common name, and for all I know Alejski might be in Poland too. I found a manifest that had he and Minnie traveling together, but then again there could have been another Theodore and Minnie. I have found that with my other sides of the family when researching. Sometimes there are different couples with the same or similar first and last names but they are not the ones connect to my family. I will have to check into that further!
