At Passaic, New Jersey, the concentration of textile mills offered an ideal destination for the Dawson family. According to the occupations listed on the immigration manifests at Ellis Island, almost every member of the Dawson family was an experienced textile worker. Ellen Dawson and her family did not live in the comfort of the west side. They lived on the east side of town, at 194 President Street, in an ethnically diverse neighborhood. Their neighbors, those living on the same block, included individuals born in Yugoslavia, Russia, Hungary, Austria, Germany, and Poland. Their occupations were equally diverse, including a steam fitter, butcher, cigar maker, plumber, carpenter, salesman, office clerk, and teacher.
