Thanks very much. I had been to this site before, but overlooked the ability to open an enlarged version of the manifest. Also, I didn't realize that could be more than one page and one might have to go back and forth.

It is in the Ellis Island Database:
There are two pages to this manifest entry.

I'm not certain but it may be at the end of the ship's manifest. I think
this information is entered there if she was detained until someone arrived
to meet her. I didn't see any notes to indicate that she was detained.

1892 when at the end of each manifest they state who was detained, why and
what happened to them (usually sent back)."
