Hi Ann, as far as I know, there is no collection of information on iron masters in America. There is little by way of occupational information. Where would one get such information? Generally from censuses. However there are no censuses. (There's a few census substitutes but they're largely tax lists and land records -- so they don't tend to identify occupations)
You may benefit from reading through the courses at www.genealogy.com.university on immigration: the general course and the one specific to colonial times. This will acquaint you with information about the kinds of records that exist and the methodologies used to search them. It may well not be enough -- but it's a start.
You can also download the free guide to immigration research at www.familysearch.org, as well as the guide to America and the state in question. Also there are guides that list the indexes. If you glance through the indexes and see no occupational records -- it's a clue that they do not exist. Other useful sources are "The Source" (you can find at a library).
Best of luck!
