On July 9, 1896, a few months after the second batch of Lamza family members came ashore, Paul and Marie (Lamza) Baranec arrived at Ellis Island with their son Paul, Jr. aboard the S.S. Halle. If you click on the image below, you will see a full-size copy of the manifest page where they are listed. They had Ticket #2837 and are listed on Lines 6-8.
Click here if you would like to see the 1st page of the ship's manifest that lists the ship and captain. Click here if you'd like to see the "tax page" with some additional summary information about the ship's voyage.
The ShipsList.com website has the following description of the S.S. Halle:

At this point I don't have an image of this ship. Also, as with the other arrivals to Ellis Island, I don't have any information about their trip from New York to Galveston.
