Mr. James Tulloch

James Tulloch was born in Scotland and later moved to Kendall, Montana, United States. He married Agnes Kerr. On 14 June 1914, a daughter, named Hannah, was born to James and Agnes. The entire Tulloch family was lost in the Lusitania disaster, and their bodies were either not recovered or never identified. Hannah was only an infant at the time of her death. Agnes' father, Andrew Kerr, brought his case to the Mixed Claims Commission to sue Germany for damages. Even though the Tullochs had intended to return to the United States, since neither of the adult Tullochs were United States citizens (as James had never become naturalized), and Hannah was too young to have been earning an income for the family, the Mixed Claims Commission did not award Agnes' father any money for the lost of his daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. The mining town of Kendall, Montana, where the Tullochs lived, is now a ghost town and has been since 1920.
