Ancestry Ellis Island White Polish Austrian

I’ve already sent my study to find which ship my Grandpa Valentine Nowak (Walenty) came on.
In checking for my mother’s Grandpa.  I’m a little bit more hesitant.
Here’s the closest I can come up with but with the name of “Jozef” not Mattheusz.  It is the same age and Kopaczewski is not a common name so there are only 9 names to pick from.
Passenger Record:  Ellis Island
0012. Kopaczewski, Jozef M 37y M Polish, Russia Chicago, Ill.
It shows he was 37 years old, about the same age my Grandpa would have been.  Since I was told and records of their 14 children’s names, I can only assume that he left 1/2 of the children in Poland, as I’m sure they wouldn’t let them immigrate with 10 children, (I think 4 were born here.)  I can only account for 7 in my memory.
It has him as “Polish Russian” and I always refer to him as the “Polish Russian General,” so that makes sense, as I’m using my memory on what I write. It is why I need to get this into a book, for my memory is being strained and have very little to go on since we were to ‘erase’ Poland from our minds and become Americans and speak English and give up our language, culture and heritage.  (Unlike the illegal criminal Mexicans that demand they keep everything and take whatever the country has to offer.)
Grandpa Kopaczewski also came through Bremen Germany as my other ancestry email.  It is my guess that the Kopaczewski’s and the Nowaks knew each other.  I believe Daddy was on his way to California from New York, and stopped to see “Kopaczewski” friends of his Dad’s, met my Mama and they got married, and ruined the Jew’s plan to marry my Mama in 1930.
Grandma Kopaczewski is also hard to find.
Passenger Record:
Pawlowski, Malgrzeta        Przedscz, Russia         33       1876      Jun 09 1909     Fredrich der Grosse (ship)
(Port)   Bremen, Germany 101617030336
From what I understand Grandma was Russian.  When Grandpa was in the war, he married a war bride.  I think.
I’m using the maiden name, though, as I can’t find her married name.  Perhaps they had to separate and have different identities.
On my Daddy’s side, his father’s wife was Jadwiga Nowak, and this is all I come up with:
93      Nowak, Jadwiga      Glozec      20 yrs     1882      May 31 1902     Pretoria (Ship)  Hamburg, Germany (port)
102760100807
I’m going to call the Mormon Family History Center to get further information.  They have cut back on their hours as even ‘churches’ are feeling the pinch nowadays.  I wonder If the “Temples and Synogues”
