Sorry for the delay in replying,I've had computer problems. I checked all states for the ship, I don't know if it matters but he was a German immigrant. His name was William Henry Nickel born in 1865 in Germany died 1948 in Sydney. I had been assuming that he would have come to Australia with family but looking more closely he was not married when he emigrated so he could have been alone. Probably the passenger lists don't really matter if he was alone as I was trying to find out who he traveled with. I found a photo of him with his son, grand son and great grand son. I have found his marriage andrecords in Australia. Which makes me think he was probably alone when he arrived. Now I'm going to have to try to find his birth record in Germany, I'm not sure how to go about that. I don't speak German but I'll try.
