Chicago USA?  Got a name for any of the passengers? 

I can find the ship departing from Liverpool in 1890 ** but not 1887 as yet.

** the lists start from 1890 - 1960 so no 1887 on my resource I'm afraid.

The City Of Chester did make several trips in 1887 but nothing listed for March 1887 under surname Johnson/Johnston.
 
You really need to give full names, age to help the search not just a surname for future searches.

list starts here:
http://www.rootschat.com/links/01ngn/

click 5 times on Frame +1 to get the the City of Chester starting page. then click through the list, scroll down each time or you will make the same mistake I did the first time through and miss half of the names.

I didn't see any Johnsons. Lots of people from Belfast, none from Co. Down outside of Belfast
Cambridgeshire: Billups, Cropley; Derbyshire: Jenkinson, Gratton; Co Down: O'Rourke, Rodgers, Cunningham
