Simon. Wrong assumption. She is listed as Simon on the manifest and is
going to a brother-in-law, Josef Livov(?) in Chicago, W. 304 Chicago Ave.
Simon, Bertha , Hungary, Slovak , Vrntky, Hungary , 22 Nov 1905 , 14y , F ,

Just using Simova this is the closest I could come. She was going to an
uncle's home in Bridgeport, CT according to the ship's manifest on the
Ellis Island database.
Simova, Franteska , Austria, Bohemian , Bredetice, Bohemia , 2 Nov 1905,
