Passenger 265 on the S.S. Aurania is Sofia Vinberg. Passenger 262 listed as J.A. Andri is Lutherus Andre; he paid Marie's passage and accompanied her on the journey. He was the same person as Lutherias Andren, who later accompanied Karl Winberg.

This is Lutherus Andre, the man who signed for both Marie and her brother Charles to enter America. He first came to America from Sweden in 1889. In 1892, he was working at the Forest Woodward farm in Cottage Grove. For both Marie and Charles, he travelled to Sweden, arranged their passage, and signed for them to enter the country. A letter from Charles Winberg indicates that immigrants without an escort or sufficient funds were sent back to their native countries. (Original: Alice Robinson)
