Her normal run seems to have been from Avonmouth to Montreal but she was owned by a subsidiary of the Canadian Northern Railway so I imagine that the family were booked for onward travel by train.

Most unusual name. That is certainly one that I was never asked to put on the red part of the map at school.  Since the offer is there ,how about Oneida or should it be Queida? Thanks to you all. T

Please give some context for this last question as there are plenty of ONEIDAs in Canada, that name being one of the tribes of the Six Nations.

Cheers,
Westoe

Quite right Westoe.
A Mrs. Adams sailed 2nd class on the St. Paul on 8th March 1913. The book entry does not show the ship's destination ( probably New York). The entry adds "Full fare to 'Oneida' paid 11..9..11.
District of Canada is not shown which is unusual in this book.
In the event it appears she tranferred to the Majestic sailing on 12 March.  T
