This information was posted in May, 2002. On October, 27,2002, I received an e-mail from a woman in Denmark with the following amazing story:

Dear Carol Livingstone,

I just found your page about: "Casualties from the transport ship Antilles, 1917".

In 1917 my grandmothers (Hilda) brother P. Igholm, Nosco (in Denmark he's town was Nakskov, not Nosco) told the family, that he was on his way home to Denmark from America.

And then my family didn't hear anything from him.

P. Igholms other sister (Grethe) was 11 years old at that time - and until she died 5 years ago 95 years old, she was talking about her brother and what happened to him.

She was asking several organisations, bur they didn't find him.

Today 85 years later, I found him in one and the same time I was very sad and happy.

Sad because Grethe was dead and I could not tell her that her brother was dead and happy, because we now know he is dead.

Kind regards from
Annie Malmgren

See the web site Annie has created to honor her great uncle.
