Mrs. William Hiram Gray (Terence Florence Healey)

Terence Florence Gray, née Healey, 24, was a United States citizen from Los Angeles, California, and the wife of William Hiram Gray.  She was traveling on theLusitania with her four-year-old son, Stuart and father-in-law James Paul Gray of Oakland.  The Gray party was traveling to join James' wife, Carrie Gray, in Scotland for an extended vacation. According to a letter written to James Gray by fellow Lusitania survivors Thomas and Maud Turpin, at the time of the disaster Florence had just put Stuart to sleep in a deck chair.  Florence and Stuart were together with Maud for much of the sinking, and they stood together with Thomas, who had just found Maud, as the ship sank beneath them. Florence's body was not recovered or identified, nor was that of Stuart.  William Hiram Gray was awarded $25,000.00 by the American Mixed Claims commission for the loss of his family.
