      "He is in the 1920 census listed as Peter Meidon, at 1104 1st St, Kalamazoo, age 26, from Poland in 1913, wife Agnes 22, from Bohemia 1913, kids are a son Elganus 2, born in MI, Valeria 3 months, born in MI. They have several boarders too. It looks like you had found him on the Ellis Island data base, arriving in 1913, going to a friend in Kalamazoo. Did you also see another passenger on that same page, Helena Zelasko who is going to the same person in Kalamazoo?
