Mrs Tillie Taussig (née Mandelbaum)
Mrs Emil Taussig (Tillie Mandelbaum), 39, was born 18 December 1872, the daughter of Herman Mandelbaum, a New York merchant.
She boarded the Titanic at Southampton, as a first class passenger, together with her husband Emil Taussig and daughter Ruth Taussig.
She and Ruth were rescued in lifeboat 8.
Five months after the disaster, while administering her late husband's estate, Mrs Taussig found some shares which had, hitherto, been thought worthless. Mrs Taussig sold the shares, for the Engelhardt Collapsible Lifeboat Company, for $2000.
After the sinking, Mrs Taussig remarried to Morris Samuel.
Tillie Samuel (late Taussig, née Mendelbaum) died in New York City on 17 June 1957.
