Dear Ms. Edwards,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest you search the National Archives of Panama to determine what types of passenger arrival and immigrant records may exist in Panama. It also may be worthwhile for you to check the Jamaica Archives & Records Department to ascertain if departure records exist for 1910 and 1913.
There is a NARA Prologue article Looking for an Ancestor in the Panama Canal Zone, 1904-1914 that may provide additional information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!

Hello Ms Edwards,
I noticed your post and I am myself looking for almost the same information. My grandfather went to Panama in about1906 and I could find no trace of him in Panama. Have you been able to find a Passenger list for people arriving and leaving Colon?
If it's of any help to you, I found this reference to Panama Records:
CANAL ZONE GOVERNMENT
PANAMA CANAL COMPANY
Agency Records Control Schedule (ARCS)
Records of the Civil Affairs Bureau
Item 104 - Marriage Licenses
Item 106 - Incoming Passenger Lists
Item 107 - Outgoing Passenger Lists
This is as far as I got, as I cannot locate the above items of interest to me.
