Your man did not die on the ship.

That column was used by immigration officials to tally the number of male and female passengers by nationality on a given page.

For example, on the page you reference, the numbers in that column are:
5-6, meaning 11 Poles, 5 male, 6 female
3-2 meaning 5 Bohemians, 3 male, 2 female
2-1 meaning 3 Austrians, 2 male, 1 female
2-2 meaning 4 Roumaniana, 2 male, 2 female
3-3 meaning 6 Hungarians, 3 male, 3 female
6-2 meaning 8 Prossians, 6 male,2 female
11-6 meaning 17 Russians, 11 male, 6 female

These match the total tally on the left of 54 passengers, 32 male, 22 female.
