When she was in her early thirties she married Samuel L. Goldenberg but had no further children. Mr and Mrs Goldenberg boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg with her husband.

  • 1. It was long thought that Mr Goldenberg's wife on the Titanic was Edwiga "Ella" Grabówska however it appears that this information was incorrect.
  • 2. Nella's son worked with the American Red Cross in France during World War I while her daughter married and lived in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The son remained in France for most of his adult life and died at the age of 99.
