Rosalie Altmore Bonsignore


Age: 93


Summary: New York woman who was in the news in 2006 when she told local reporters that she claimed to be one of the last living survivors of the sunken passenger ship RMS Lusitania (the disaster killed more than 128 Americans aboard when the German U-boat torpedoed the ocean liner during the early years of World War I on May 7, 1915), but whose story was later debunked by news agencies numerous times over the last several years as the passenger and crew lists did not provide sufficient evidence that she was on board for the ship's last crossing.
