   I read  in many  places  that the first Indian to have  visited USA from India  was from Madras  and he visited  Massachusetts. After a  long research I found out   that the particulars  about  that man is  mentioned  in a book called
Counseling Asian Indian Immigrant Families: A Pastoral Psychotherapeutic Model
By Varughese Jacob

Here is a  photo  of the information  given about  him  in that book. WE understand  that he was sailor from Madras.
