Harry:  I did a quick search Ancestry.com, in their "New York Passenger Lists 1850-1927."  Anna Frendzel, age 16, appears in line 24 of the manifest for the Statendam, which sailed from Rotterdam on 23 June 1906 and arrived in New York on 5 July 1906.  There are two sets of handwriting on the manifest.  The first appears to have provided the basic information, and the second -- in a lighter, more rounded hand, possibly writing in pencil, added amplifying information.

The second hand added that Anna Frendzel was step-sister of Augusta Frantz, age 19, who appears on line 23.  No occupation is listed for Frantz; the second hand noted that Frendzel was a "servant."  They were both ethnic Germans, both from "Ingowangy," and both headed to "No. Braddock, Pa."  Augusta passed was paid by an "uncle," while Anna's was paid by a "sister."  The first hand had written that they were each in possession of $5, but the second hand crossed that out and wrote, "none."  Augusta said she was going to stay with her uncle, Ludwig Kroll, Grant Ave. 32 No. Braddock, Pa.  Anna said she was going to stay with "Bril August Meyer c/o L. Kroll 32 Grant Ave. No. Braddock, Pa.
