Alfred Ansel

Birth: unknown, USA
Death: Jun. 15, 1904
New York, USA

Victim of the General Slocum Disaster - age 4 years old, death cert # 2973, lived at 103 E 4th Street.

We then headed west on East 4th Street, and paused to recall Mr Ansel of #103. June 15th 1904 was a work day, and like most men in Little Germany Mr Ansel remained behind at his store while his wife Louisa (28) and sons Alfred (4) and Eugene (6) embarked on the excursion. A telegram was delivered to Mr. Ansel at the store, announcing the death of his father in Germany. Before the end of the day, he had lost his entire immediate family in America, as well.

Ansel, like Henry Heinz and many other Slocum victims and survivors, had bought an ad in the Excursion Programme compiled by Mary Abenschein(who, 70 years later, my great grandmother still remembered) and handed out to guests aboard the ship. The programme, 'though mostly in German, contains much of interest to the researcher. - Jim Kalafus
