Help with name on Immigration Record

Post by sleone1981 » 01 Oct 2013, 23:34

This is the second page of my great-grandfather's immigration record from Ellis Island. Line 4 is his, and line 5 is his sister Brigida.

I can clearly see that Brigida is going to join her sister Antonina who lives at 35 Monroe St. I can also see that my great-grandfather is joining someone at the same address. But I cannot make out that person's name or their relation to him. It looks like the first name might be Matthew or Matteo.

I agree... I think it says that he is going to "relative Matteo Polito at 35 Monroe St."
