Titanic Survivor, 1912.... Molly Brown. (asked by reporters upon landing in New York to what she attributed her survival, she is quoted as having replied) __"Typical Brown luck. We're unsinkable."1867-1932.
The Titanic sank early on April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg the night before. Margaret helped others board the lifeboats but was finally convinced to leave the ship in Lifeboat No. 6. Molly Brown was dubbed "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" because she helped in the ship's evacuation, taking an oar herself in her lifeboat and protesting for the lifeboat to go back to try to save more people.
Maggie Brown - Most people will remember her from the Titanic movie, but according to our tour guide, she was quite as abrasive as Kathy Bates portrayed her. And she wasn't some backwater ignorant redneck. At the time of the Titanic sinking she spoke 6 languages and acted as a translator and advocate for the immigrant widows who survived the wreck.

The Unsinkable Molly Brown - who survived the sinking of the Titanic (1912). A remarkable woman who would later have a musical created about her life and times. It seems very corny now but as a child I adored the film version of the musical starring Debbie Reynolds. I missed visiting Molly Brown's mansion while in Denver. Would love to see it.
