Dhenin, Thomas

Thomas Dhenin. He had been born in Swansea, Wales, 1 April 1875 to Louis Elijer, a shipwright born about 1828 at Swansea, and Sarah (nee Davies; born about 1836 at Swansea) Dhenin, who had married toward the end of 1852 at Swansea. His known brothers and sisters were Louis, b. 1858, Martha Jane, b. 1866, Margaret Ann, and Lavinia, b. 1873. He had married Evelyn Augusta Thomson on 6 September, 1903, in Bootle, England. He lived at 317 58th Street, Brooklyn, New York City and his wife Evelyn and children Thomas and Isabella, who had lived in Linacre, England, had come to join him there in September 1914. The Cunard Line gave his age as 31 and his point of origin as New York. He survived the Lusitania disaster, but lost his wife and two children. After the death of his wife and children in the sinking of the Lusitania, he went back to England and married Olivia McNulty in Ormskirk in 1919. He was a printer and pressman at the time. He died in Birkenhead in 1947, and was at that time said to have been 62 years of age (72, actually).
