Ole Andreas Knutson - Cunard travels

While trying to locate the missing child of Ole and Mari Finnestad's eldest daughter, Elizabeth, I came across a passenger list for Elizabeth's husband, Ole Andreas Knutson.

Ole (listed on line #27) traveled on the Cunard's SS Campania arriving in New York from Liverpool on February 23, 1902.   

Here is a postcard of the ship.

Ole possibly knew the gentleman listed below him,  Emil (last name indecipherable) since he lived in Leland, Illinois where Elizabeth and Ole first settled after moving to the United States.  

Apparently Elizabeth did not travel with her husband on this trip as her name was not listed anywhere on the 12 pages of the passenger list.
