Here's an index of biographical files that mentions Max Samuel and Goldiana Morell arriving in Toronto in 1860. This makes me wonder if the Lusitania Resource isn't mistaken in putting her age at 71 when she survived the Lusitania sinking. I had thought other sources put her name at 76, which is probably closer to the truth, unless she was married VERY young.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for posting this information, it's very interesting. I noticed that Elgin Morell was a member of the Queen's Own Rifles, so I will speculate that he may have been acquainted with Major Arthur Peuchen. Plus, both of them had something else in common by accident, being that Peuchen's brother in law was a survivor of the Lusitania who was also of this city (Toronto).
