NAOMI (BROCK) ROSENTHAL AND HAROLD ROSENTHAL - QUARANTINE / DETENTION AT ELLIS ISLAND - SEPTEMBER 18-29, 1916
- This shows that after their arrival in New York on Sept. 18, 1916, Naomi (Brock) Rosenthal and her son Harold (listed as "Rosenthal Nomie + ch") were quarantined until September 29 ("quar 9/29"), and that on Sept. 30 they were released to Naomi's husband Albert Rosenthal ("Husb Albert R 270 Saratoga ave Bklyn"). From the passenger list we know that the reason for quarantining them was chicken pox.
- It looks like the number of meals the shipping company was charged for was 2 breakfasts, 4 dinners (i.e., lunch) and 2 suppers. Presumably they were released from quarantine on the 29th in time for lunch and dinner, and the next day they were given breakfast and lunch ("dinner") before leaving. And presumably the shipping company was not charged for meals served during the quarantine.
