Admiralty Case # 1162 Mobile, Alabama 1907
Southern Pacific Steam Ship Co. et. al. vs Steamer "Fort Morgan"
This was the first time I saw mention of a female crew member.
Pauline Ellerman was a claimant for unpaid wages. As a ship stewardess, between New Orleans, Louisiana and Havana, Cuba
her pay was listed as $20.00 a month.   
[The steward was paid $60.00 a month.]
