This ship was built as the Monmouth for Elder Dempster & Company for the New Orleans service. She was purchased by the Dominion Line in 1898 and renamed Irishman, and was later sold on to the Atlantic Transport Line's subsidiary National Line in 1903 and renamed Michigan. Chartered to the Phoenix Line 1911-14, the ship was transferred back to the Atlantic Transport Line in 1914. In 1926 she was sold to E. Modiano of Trieste, renamed Candido, and scrapped in 1927.
