Load the same manifest in Ancestry then use the navigation buttons to go to the last page of the manifest, page 39. This is the "Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry" and you will see Gioachino on line 19.

I can't make out the word in the reason column; here is a picture in case anyone else can offer a guess.
Carmine

Thanks for posting the links Valarie- I was having trouble saving the images this morning....

Does anyone have any ideas on the information on the original manifest page - for the calling/occupation?
something is written underneath NY City but I can't make it out?
then I think maybe it says he is going to stay with his son? can't make out the first name or address info?
last column looks like it says something like dr says something about eyes?
thank you!
