Barbados to NY Forster Families

I am searching for Walter E. Forster b. nov. 17, 1865 who married (Oct 15, 1900) Dora Griffith? b. may 5, 1882 or 1885. Their children were: Bertram b. 1902, Walter Martin b. 1904, Ester b. 1905, Edna b.1910, and Herbert b. 1912. I found a listing from Ellis Island showing Dora coming from Barbados in 1909 with children Berte, Martin, and Ester to go live with their father W. E. Forster in Brooklyn, NY. The manifest stated that Dora, Berte, and Ester were all born in Barbados, and Martin was born in Boston. Bertram married Margaret Abrams(?) Oct 30, 1920. I would appreciate any information anyone has.
