    Passenger list--Ths Ship "Rockall" Departed Havre de Grace, France
    The Fries family traveled aboard the ship Rockall, landing in New York on the 12th of December, 1953. Family legend has it that they traveled with two other relatives. From birth records we know that children Rose and Suzanne were twins, but Rose is only listed on the ship's manifest. Her age is listed as 2/4 years--or mathematically about six months. Note that the family listed beneath them on the manifest has a daughter aged 2/4, whose name is Suzanne. Additionally, they are from the same area as the Fries, and are bound for the same place in the United States. Follow-up research has not provided a tie; and there appears to be no association. But a connection has not been ruled out.
