Historical Husband, Raphael Eliyahu Sassoon, was married two more times after her death. His second wife was a sister of S. Manasseh. He and his third wife, whom he married in 1880, celebrated their silver wedding anniversary on June 9, 1905 (as reported in the Hongkong Telegraph). He had been resident in Singapore for almost 20 years. For many years, he was in business partnership with Messrs Meyer and Co. He later opened his own business known as R. Sassoon and Co., which was later managed by his son, Elias. He died around October 10, 1909 at the age of 70.
