In 1901 my grandfather ,James Hyland,then aged 61,travelled from Queens County (Laois) Ireland to New York on family business.On the ships manifest,it stated that he was going to stay with his sister "Gretta" Hyland,(Margaret?)who lived in Paterson,New Jersey.Gretta may have been his sister-in-law,not his sister.Looking through the relevent U.S. census for 1900/1910/1920 I have been unable to trace her.Can anyone lend a hand?Bill
