      Hi Lisa,

      The dates don't jive, but for what it's worth, I found a J. deVries (no
      space, the way you spelled it) on the passenger list of S.S. Rotterdam,
      sailing 19 October 1899 to New York.
      I started looking with the 1888 sailings and that's the only deVries listed.
      Look at it on http://istg.rootsweb.com/v2/1800v2/rotterdam18991019.html
      If that's the one, a picture of the boat is on
      The sailings I looked at were only the ones from Holland, he might have left
      from some other country?

      Good luck
