Looking closely at that manifest, it looks like she was headed for MN. Was Forsvik her married or maiden name?
Emigrant Register says to Cloquet, MN

Ida's father was named Zacharias Isacsson Forsvik, Forsbacka and mother, Caisa Wilhelmina Aitalammi. And it was Ida's maiden name. Hoping to follow her a bit, then maybe she has gone to the U.S..

I have other relatives and from the same place in Siikainen / Merikarvia, located in Cloquet, MN, perhaps she is there. Can you see who she is or of her travel companion.

Here are the 2 images for her arrival. She was going to a friend Emil Strand in Cloquet. I found Emil and his family in Cloquet, but no Ida. I searched several pages before and after his census page in 1910. I don't see any travelling companion, at least from the same place, on the manifest. She's at the bottom.

Thanks Karen. Hoping to continue to track her, wondering where she had gone. What would be the next step to follow?

I tried a search just using her birthdate. Lots of Ida's, but if she married, hard to determine which one she is. I'll keep looking. Do you have any of the other relatives names that maybe she went to?:)

The family that I had in mind, and was in Cloquet, went there later in 1914, so Ida must have been there first. But there are certainly many people who went over there at the same place, from Merikarvia / Siikainen and were related. But try to look up any names.

Believe that finding a name that connects to Ida. Ida's brother Frans Oskar b. 06/06/1858 Siikainen, and his daughter, Selma Maria's husband, Jacob Apeeli Tähtinen b. 5/11/1904, and his father Nestor Hermansson Tähtinen b. 1/7/1874 d. 10/30/1916 Merikarvia in the U.S..

I mean Nestor Hermansson Tähtinen d. 10/30/1916 in U.S..

Do not know where in U.S.
