* Boulan, James is actually James M. Boulard. Dunninff, R. is actually Richard Dunning. These men were members of a then-famed vocal group, The Alleghanians (note the unusual spelling). It is well established that The Alleghanians were on board this ship, from correspondence their manager, Jesse Hutchinson, Jr., published in the New York Daily Tribune. The names of these, the founding members of the group, may be found in Dale Cockrell's capsule biography of the band in the 4 vol. Grove dictionary/encyclopedia of American music. Other members of the group - Miriam G. Goodenow and William H. Oakley - plus Miss Goodenow's brother, George Goodenow, are present in the same passenger list, as is the name of their manager, Jesse Hutchinson, Jr.
