Traveling Great Grandmother #general

Ellen Gottfried


My great grandmother married in London in August 1898.  In December 1898 she traveled by herself to New York, listing her occupation as servant.  At some point she returned to London, where she gave birth in March, 1899.  My great grandmother, great grandfather and the baby then traveled to Montreal by ship, and by train to Hartford, Connecticut during the summer of 1899.  Does anyone have an idea as to why a pregnant woman would travel by herself across the Atlantic Ocean?   Ellen GOTTFRIED, Plainview, New York
