About Ada Elizabeth Ball

Ada E Hall

Ada moved from London to Bristol, Somerset after the death of her husband and later decided to emigrate to Jacksonville, Florida to be near her sister, Emily and brother-in-law Rev Robert James Bateman and to carry out missionary work in that area. She left her adult sons behind in England.

She boarded the Titanic at Southampton travelling second class (ticket number28551, £13), accompanying her brother-in-law Rev. Bateman destined for Florida. She shared a cabin on D-Deck with Marie Jerwan.

Ada survived the sinking. As she entered the lifeboat (? 10, 12 or 14) Bateman called to her 'If I don't meet you again in this world, I will in the next'. He then removed his neck-tie and threw it to her as the boat was lowered. Rev. Bateman died in the sinking.

After the disaster Ada remarried to William R. Perine and apparently lived a very happy life. She was a devout Christian woman who was known for her kindness and generosity to all she met. She later moved to Pittsfield, Massachusetts and died, on 1 October 1967 in Cockeysville, Maryland.
