1Alter (age 40) and Rosa Grabojes (age 16) immigrated to the US from Russia through Ellis Island on August 20, 1913 on the Uranium from Rotterdam, South Holland, The Netherlands.

The Grabois Project (information provided by Boris Kravitz): page 1, page 2, page 3.  Also see Rappaport family history.

Alexander "Sender" Grabois immigrated to North America in the latter half of the 19th century, according to the "Russians to America, 1850-1896 Passenger and Immigration Lists". This is a strong candidate for a Kishinev immigrant. There's no record of him coming through Ellis Island, though, but that didn't open for immigration until 1892.
