* Passengers were not numbered on the original manifest.
* ? represents letters that couldn't be read accurately.
* There were no deaths noted so I've eliminated the Death column.
1 Vincent God?iff - The letter in question looks like an oversized lower case S but it may be a B.
9 through 12 Dunsford and Deniston - The word Ontario was added in a different handwriting next to the word Canada in both columns.
