Birth: unknown, Norway
Death: Sep. 8, 1934

VICTIM OF THE S.S. MORRO CASTLE FIRE.

Miss Jerri Errickson,aged 28 years. 41-12 71st Street, Flushing, Queens, NY. Body identified at Sea Girt New Jersey. Possibly a pseudonym of Aagot Halvorsen, who appears on some fatality lists as a crew member. Jerri's birth name was "A. Halvorsen." A native of Norway, where she left parents, she assumed her new name when she moved away from her brother's family in Yonkers, New York to live with her uncle. Some sources say she taught at Hunter College, Manhattan, while others list her as being a secretary there. Buried at Woodlawn Cemetery [THE CEMEMTERY OFFICE HAS NO RECORDS FOR HER AND THERE IS NO GRAVE WITH EITHER OF THESE NAMES ON IT.] The Bronx. Miss Erricskon may have been one of the passengers killed or fatally incapacitated by a life preserver, having it slam up under her chin as she jumped: her brother, Albert Halvorson, was quoted as saying that she was a strong swimmer who struck something when she jumped from the ship.
