Soon after their first meeting, Gabby accompanied Alice across the Atlantic on board the steamship Bremen, departing Charbourg, France, and arriving in New York Harbor on August 19, 1931. This was the first of many transatlantic crossings Gabby was to make, including one by herself in 1951 and another in 1955, two years after Alice’s death. These last two trips were probably to visit family in France.
The Petition was Granted on April 23,1946 when Gabby raised her right hand and took the Oath of Allegiance.
