Miss Katherine Gleason

Katherine Gleason, 23, lived at 6427 Champlain Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, United States and was returning to Ireland aboard Lusitania to see her family in Killmallock, County Limerick.  She wrote her extended family in Yonkers, New York to invite them to see her off; however, she mistakenly addressed the letter to Mrs. Johanna Murphy of 48 Yonkers Avenue, New York City.  By the time the letter had reached her extended family Lusitania had already departed. Katherine was lost in the sinking.
