First Immigrant to Ellis Island
Above is the picture of 1892 Irish immigrant Annie Moore who is credited with being the first person to go through Ellis Island at the tender age of 15 and here a New York Times on her. She lived until 24 on the Lower East Side of New York. Here are other articles on her. You can also go here and see her passenger record, the ship manifest and an image of the ship.
