      Karin and Karen,
      Before Ellis Island was Castle Gardens that John Scorby would have gone through. The problem is during the early years of Ellis Island there was a fire that destroyed a big portion of the Castle Garden records. My own relatives I have never been able to find their entry with their arrival in 1888-89. Ancestry.com has some Castle Garden records to search.

      Hello Karin, Well looks like you are covering all of your bases. I did notice on a few records (1910 & 1920 census) that John
      Scorby indicated he was born in 1886 in Austria. He also indicated on his WWI registration that he was a citizen by his father's
      naturalization. In the 1910 census it states that he came to the U.S. in 1887 or 1889. Have you seen these records and have you tried
      to find an arrival record or a naturalization record.
