Brother Files Letters of Survivors in Asking for Administration Papers
Edwin H. Foreman obtained yesterday from Surrogate Fowler letters of administration on the $10,000 estate of his brother, Benjamin L. Foreman, who was drowned on the Titanic, April 15. Mr. Foreman said he had received a letter from Miss Edith Rosenbaum of 45 Merrill Road, Far Rockaway, one of the survivors of the Titanic, informing him that she had seen his brother near her in the ship's library about two hours before the ship struck the iceberg. Miss Rosenbaum was so ill, it was stated, that she could not make an affidavit to her statement.
Abraham L. Solomon, another Titanic survivor, made affidavit that after the ship struck he saw Mr. Foreman on deck with a life belt and a steamer rug, and asked him to come to an upper deck, to enter a lifeboat. Mr. Foreman, however, remained on the lower deck.
Samuel L. Goldenberg of Goldenberg Brothers, Fifth Avenue and Eighteenth Street, who lives most of the time in Nice, France, was another Titanic survivor who said he saw Mr. Foreman on board the Titanic fifteen minutes before the ship sank. Mr. Goldenberg was 600 feet away in a lifeboat when the Titanic went down, he said.
The will of George Rosenshine, who went down with the Titanic, was filed yesterday in the Surrogates Court for probate. His estate is valued at $150,000 in personalty. He leaves the residue of his estate to his brother, Albert Rosenshine, and $1,000 each to Albert Frank, Harold Frank, Jeanette Frank, Viola Frank, Miriam Frank, Adelaide Frank, and to Rica Levy, $500. Mount Sinai Hospital receives $150, Hebrew Benevolent Orphan Asylum $150, and the Montefiore Home $150.
