Mrs Flegenheim boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a first class passenger (ticket number PC 17598, £31, 13s, 8d). She was rescued in lifeboat 7.
On 20 June 1912, she married Paul Elliot White-Hurst in Buffalo, New York. Mr White-Hurst was a British subject.
Both lived in England and during world war one. Antoinette was living in The Hague, The Netherlands probably divorced from her second husband.
After the war she went to Munich, Germany (Nibelungenstr. 90 – now Arnulfstr. 300) but being a British subject she was forced to leave Germany in 1939 upon the declaration of war between Britain and Germany.
