I am trying to find out the date and cause of death of a passenger in the New York, Passenger and Crew Lists (including Castle Garden and Ellis Island), 1820-1957 on Ancestry.
The passenger is Maria Wertz (age 26) on the passenger list for the ship New York, sailing from Southampton, arriving in the port of New York on 22 Jan 1894 (from NARA's M237, Roll 622). Her entry is on line number 9.
It looks as though she was a governess and the code under Date and cause of death is 2 - 1?
What would have happened to her body?
