About Ethel Sanderson

These articles from The New York Times relate to my grandmother, Ethel Eames Sanderson, who died in childbirth at forty. Nancy Beresh.

New York Times-June 19, 1912:

The engagement has been announced of Miss Ethel Eames, daughter of Frances L. Eames, former President of the New York Stock Exchange, to the Rev. Edward F. Sanderson, pastor of the Church of the Pilgrims in Brooklyn.

Miss Eames is prominent in Brooklyn society and has long been engaged in settlement work. She was for some time the President of the Asacog Club, which is now merged with the United Neighborhood Guild of Brooklyn, and since that time has given much of her time to the New Era Club, an organization of girls which is said to be one of the most successful settlement institutions in the country.

The Eames home is at 125 Remsen Street, which is on the same block as the Church of the Pilgrims, and the young minister was frequently entertained here by Mr. Eames. The Rev. Mr. Sanderson was called to the church in March, 1910, and is 38 years old. His first pastorate was the Washington Street Congregational Church in Beverly, Mass., from where he went to Providence, R. I., and later to Cleveland, Ohio, where he received his call to Brooklyn.

The engagement was announced by Miss Eames, who is at the Eames country home in Kennebunkport, Maine., by letters to her intimate friends in Brooklyn. The Rev. Mr. Sanderson is spending his summer vacation in Maine.
