Gave Annie Ten Dollars
NEW YORK, Jan. 1. — Without any ceremony or formal opening the immigration officials of this city to-day settled down on Ellis Island, in the harbor, and the barge office is known to them no more. The steamship Nevada was the first to arrive at the new landing place. Her immigrants were put aboard the barge J. E. Moore, and amid the blowing of foghorn and whistles approached the pier. Charles M. Hanley, private secretary to the late Secretary Windom, who had asked to be allowed to register the first immigrant, was at the registry desk when there came tripping up a fifteen-year-old-girl, Annie Moore, and her little brother. They had come from Cork to meet their mother, who lives here. Col. Webber greeted Annie, and then presented her with a crisp new $10 bill.
Annie Moore is known for being the first person to be registered at Ellis Island. She is honored by two statues, one on Cobh, formerly Queenstown, which is the place of departure and one at Ellis Island .
