She travelled with Kathleen Ford and her children Frank, Marjorie and Dorothy. Kathleen Ford (nee Morris) was the sister of Silas Morris and she had married Frank Ford (who was not on the ship). They gave the address of their nearest relative in England as 14 Dorset Road, Lewes. Their final destination was Detroit, Michigan. The fact that Lilian was travelling with the Ford family suggests that she and Silas had met in England.6
Lilian Elizabeth Jessie Ralph married Silas Morris, son of Silas Morris and Martha Jeffery, circa 1914 at United States.
Circa 1918 Lilian Elizabeth Jessie Ralph and Silas Morris lived at 80 Hazelwood Ave, Detroit, Michigan, United States, according to a WWI draft registration card.
Circa 1918 Lilian Elizabeth Jessie Ralph and Silas Morris lived at 283 W Euclid Ave, Detroit, Michigan, United States, according to another WW1 draft registration card.
In the 1920 census, Silas and Lillian were lodging in San Franscisco, California at 235 O'Farrell St, San Franscisco Assembly District 33. Silas is a salesman (of safes). The census in this area has pages of lodgers, so it could be an area of temporary accommodation.7

He was aged 39 years and Lillian 36 years. His occupation was salesman. Their residence while in the UK was 46 Hubert Grove, Stockwell, London.

The destination port was New York. The Ellis Isalnd arrival record gives his last place of residence as Pittsburg, USA.

In 1945 Lilian Elizabeth Jessie Ralph and Silas Morris lived at 6204 Broad St, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.
This is the address given in a booklet dated 1945 46 which lists Silas as being the Watchman of the Shepherds in the Supreme King's Guard of the Damascus Shrine No 1 of the Order of the White Shrine of Jerusalem in Pittsburg Pennsylvania. His title was Watchman of the Shepherds of Damascus Shrine and Supreme Kings Guard. Also mentioned in the booklet was Lillian Morris, his wife.
The White Shrine of Jerusalem was founded as a Christian auxiliary to freemasons in the United States. There were 69,000 members in 1995. It appears this order is not active outside the U.S.
The White Shrine of Jerusalem is yet another variety of Christianized Adoptive Masonry — that is, Freemasonry for women. It is perhaps more congenial to evangelically minded Protestant women than the Order of the Eastern Star, though, until 1953, members of the White Shrine of Jerusalem were required to be members of the Eastern Star.
The original White Shrine of Jerusalem was founded by Charles D. Magee in Chicago on October 23, 1894, but three years later he founded a rival organization of the same name in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The two Supreme Shrines managed to reconcile their differences by 1909, and in that year they were united in Chicago. Membership is open to Master Masons as well as their wives, mothers, daughters, widows, and sisters. Members are known as Sojourners; the head of the organization is the Supreme Worthy High Priestess. (http://www.stichtingargus.nl/vrijmetselarij/frame_en.html.)

Lilian Elizabeth Jessie Ralph died on 27 March 1947 at Allegheny, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, at age 60. Silas is a widower in August 1947.11,12
