Link: Message BoardsI was there the night Hudson died. I must have been 6-7 yrs old at that time. My mother, Lalon Workman White, and I went by train from Cincinnati to Portland, ME. to visit Aunt Lillie, my mother's sister, Lillian Workman Allison who was the wife of George Allison. George Allison was brother to Hudson Allison. Hudson his wife and daughter went down on the Titanic. Hudson, his name was Trevor but we called him Hudson, was there at Ocean Park. I remember Aunt Lillie's son Eric and Hudson used to like to walk on their hands. They were both strong, healthy vigorous lads. I do not know if Hudson was on his way to college but I do know they had a lot of fun on the beach.Furthermore, I remember that one night there was a lot of activity in the house. I found out the next day that Hudson had died. They told me it was ptomaine poisoning from tainted tongue He had eaten a tongue sandwich.
My middle name is for the Allison family.
Same here. Hudson Allison was supposed to be an intelligent man and yet he reportedly repeatedly and angrily ignored Sarah Daniels' attempts to warn him that something was seriously wrong. Daniels comes across as a rather timid woman (at least in comparison with Alice Cleaver) and the fact that she was persistently intruding on his privacy should have sounded alarm bells in Allison's mind IMO.I've suddenly found myself fascinated by the whole Allison family and especially young Trevor.
Note: some claimed he was on his way to college and stopping by a family home, but I've yet to find a record he was admitted anywhere. My search continues on, but this is a rather fascinating story. Seems to all check out just fine as well. Wonderful piece of history.
