Mrs. Edward Dingley (Catherine S. Glenn)

Catherine Dingley, 38, was the wife of Edward Dingley. She was born Catherine Glenn and was a native of Clones, County Monaghan, Ireland before she emigrated to the United States. Catherine was lost in the Lusitania disaster. Catherine had been employed as a maid before her marriage to Edward Dingley, a machinist. After they were married, Catherine no longer worked as a maid and became a full-time housewife. They lived in Taunton, Massachusetts. According to the Cork Examiner, she and her husband lived at 242 West 142nd Street, New York City. Her grave in Old Church Cemetery states that she was from Taunton, Massachusetts, United States, spelled her name with a K instead of a C, and lists her husband’s name as “Howard.” Catherine’s body was recovered, #70. Her husband Edward could not afford to ship her body back to the United States. Catherine is buried in grave 591 in the Old Church Cemetery. Edward brought forth a claim with the Mixed Claims Commission where he was awarded $7,500.00 for the loss of Catherine and a further $1,770.00 for the loss of personal property with the Lusitania.
