About Hannah Abelson (Wizosky)
Mrs Samuel Abelson 1 together with her husband Samuel Abelson bought ticket number P/PP 3381 for £24. Their destination was New York, where a brother of Mr Abelson lived. On their way to America they stayed at Paris, where a brother of Mrs Abelson lived in Rue Marcadet 68.
They boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg. Mrs Abelson was rescued in lifeboat 10. Mr Abelson died in the sinking.
After her rescue, as the Carpathia steamed to New York, Mrs Abelson attempted to send a Marconigram to the address of her brother in Paris. The message, however was never transmitted, because the operators could not cope with the number of telegrams:
Jacobson rue Marcadet 68 Paris Sauvé - Carpathia (Saved - Carpathia) Abelson
Mrs Abelson was helped by the Hebrew Shelter and Emmigrant Aid Society, 229 East Broadway, in New York.
