1911 Triangle Victim: Bertha Wendroff, 205 Henry Street

One of the things that David von Drehle's update of the original casualty list enabled me to do was to find some of the KV area victims from the 1910 census. The Times' newspaper list of 1911 had many name inaccuracies. Bertha was one of two victims who amazingly survived the jump but who died a day later from internal injuries. 205 Henry Street is near Clinton Street.

How can I find this information about this census? Sarah Himmelstein was my grandmother and Bertha Wendroff was her cousin. My grandmother went to the hospital with Bertha's mother where the mother had to ID her daughter. We have the photo of Bertha from the hospital.
