McGonagall at Ellis Island

The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation has a copy of William’s entry in the passenger manifest of the Circassia when he arrived there during his trip to New York in 1887. Interestingly, he has reverted to the trade of “weaver” for the purposes of getting through US immigration.
