In a message dated 5/24/2015 JoAnne Lamm writes:
My grandmother immigrated to America aboard the Lake Ontario which
left Liverpool for St John, New Brunswick on March 27, 1897.

The last page of the ship's manifest shows a list of first initials,
last names, and ages labeled "List of Cattlemen per Lake Ontario".

Does anyone know why this ship would have carry cattlemen as well
as immigrants?
