Mrs Beila Moor

Beila Moor

Mrs Beila Moor, 27, a 'tailoress' from Russia, boarded the Titanic at Southampton with her son Master Meier Moor. They were originally to travel on the Adriatic but were transferred because of the coal strike. Their ticket was number 392096 (£12, 9s) and their cabin was E-121.

Biela had lost her husband several years before when he had gone to war and the mother and son had previously travelled to America months earlier to live with relatives but discovered the family had moved.

After the collision, Beila recalled, they were jostled up a stairway onto the Boat Deck where she and her son were able to join a lifeboat. After their rescue by the Carpathia Beila and Meier passed through immigration at New York and thence onto Canada. Later they moved to Chicago and Beila remarried. In America their names became Bella and Meyer.

Bella died in the 1960s and Meyer on April 15th 1975, the 63rd anniversary of the sinking.
