The Ship’s Manifest gives you some clues if this is the correct person:
1. His father’s name is Stefan
2. He was joining his cousin (looks like) Mikus Csupra
3. Mikus lived in Slatedale, PA
The fact that Kricsfalva is in the Maramures region in the Ukraine does not make your search easy. The Ukraine is not the easiest country to do a “remote” genealogy search. It usually requires hiring someone.

>>> I found a shipping record for a Vaszyli Cshupra which I think is a match <<<
If this is a relevant Ellis Island listing:
Csupra, Vaszyli Kriosfalva, Hungary 18 1891 1909
The old village name is Kricsfalva, Maramaros Megye, Hungary. Today, it would be found in TÃ©csÃµi district, Ukraine approx 48 10 23 33 and southeast of Slovakia.
