Misses Margaret and Beatrice Kelly of 303 Eugenie street were overjoyed last night when they learned that their seventeen-year-old sister, Annie Kelly, who was a Titanic voyager, was one of the survivors picked up by the Carpathia. Miss Kelly was ill when the Cunarder reached New York and was placed in St. Vincent's Hospital. The Misses Kelly received a telegram from the Sister Superior of the hospital last night that their sister would be sent on to Chicago as soon as she is able to travel.
"We are all so glad we feel like crying," said Miss Annie Garvey, a cousin of the Kellys, last night. "We understand that Margaret Manion, who was with Annie Kelly and the Burke family, also was saved, though Mr. and Mrs. John Burke and Mr. Burke's two cousins, Margaret and Katherine, probably were lost. Mrs. Burke was a sister of Miss Ellen McHugh of 5509 Cornell avenue, and a second cousin of Mrs. Mary McDermott of 6640 South Robey street.
"The wireless first made Margaret Manion's name 'Margaret Marion.' That was a mistake of only one letter in the last name, and we are satisfied that she is among the saved. Miss Anna McGowan, a niece of Mrs. McDermott in South Robey street, also was with the Burke family. She was saved by the Carpathia."
