I noticed your mention of Frank Tesson of the Lusitania. This is what I have on him- They were from Philadelphia, PA. They were passengers in first class and both died. Mr. Tesson was 47 years old in 1915 (I am not sure on this because his wife, Alice Lowe, was about 62 in 1915). They booked passage at the last moment, intending to go to Paris on a buying trip for the Wanamaker stores. He had been with John Wanamaker for fifteen years, and for the last seven as the head of the shoe department of the New York store. Mr. Tesson was Vice President of the Wanamaker Board of Trade and Vice President and Treasurer of the Anatomic Footwear Company. Alice Lowe had been previously married to James T. Atkins and had three sons.
