Is the place name obtained from an extraction or the original document?  I 
cannot find such a name anywhere in Eastern Europe.  If it is a document, 
I'd be happy to look at a scan which you can send me via private email to 
see if there is a better read on the writing.

I used the JewishGen / Morse site to do a sounds alike search for Ellis 
Island.  Came up with all kinds of Ehrgang, Errgang, etc. (ditto with the 
I) but only one entry in 1901 and that is a different name.
