Mr Eugene Patrick Daly, 29, from Athlone, County Westmeath, Ireland, was travelling to New York City. He boarded the Titanic at Queenstown (ticket number 382651, £7, 15s). Daly played "Erin's Lament" on his uilleann pipes (a traditional Irish instrument) for his fellow steerage passengers, as the Titanic steamed away from Queenstown, bound for the new world. He would later file a claim for $50 for their loss. Similar pipes, possibly Daly's, were recently salvaged from the wreck. He…
Miss Margaret "Maggie" Madigan, 21 (? 25), boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 370370, £7 15s). She was on her way from Askeaton, Co Limerick to New York City. Margaret survived the disaster, escaping in lifeboat 15.
Neshan Krekorian (26) There is some controversy about his getting into a lifeboat. Some say he jumped in ahead of others and some say he was ordered to get in-whichever, he survived the sinking-a rarity for a 3rd class man. He made his way to Ontario, Canada but needed rest due to his bout of pneumonia. He eventually married-but never again did he go near a boat.
Mr Frederick Barrett. On April 6th he signed to work on the Titanic's maiden voyage. He was the lead fireman and was only 28 years old. When the iceberg struck the side of the ship he was working in boiler room six. It started to fill up with water so he went through a closing door that lead to boiler room five. All of the stokers were allowed to go to the upper deck except him. Eventually they were allowed to go to the upper deck. He survived by getting on to lifeboat number thirteen.
Rhoda 'Rosa' Mary Abbott was faced with obstacle. No men allowed was the rule, and she realized that her boys would be left behind. Her maternal instinct took over and when it was her time to get into the lifeboat, she pulled her sons near her and stepped into the background. She was going to perish into the deep with her sons. Later, Rhoda and her sons were swept from the deck as the Titanic went under. She managed to grab both her sons hands, but they wer...
Susan Webber a few years before she survived the Titanic. Susan Webber survived the disaster on board lifeboat 12. She had been travelling on Titanic to emigrate to her nephew Charles E Webber of Hartford, Connecticut. She remained in the USA living with him and his wife, Kathleen, at 3 Forest Street, Rocky Hill, Hartford County, Connecticut, acting as their housekeeper for the rest of her life.
"I could see the lights of the ship starting to go under water, then soundlessly, perhaps a mile away, it just went down. It was gone. Oh yes, the sky was very black and the stars were very bright. They told me the people in the water were singing, but I knew they were screaming." Madeleine Mellinger in a Toronto Star interview, April 15, 1974, Titanic survivor
George Wright. George booked his ticket on the Titanic at the last minute. His name isn't listed on the ships original manifest. Keeping to himself, no one even remembered seeing him during the voyage. It is thought (by his friends) that because he was known to be a heavy sleeper, he probably went to bed on April 14th 1912 and just never woke up.
Sig. Battista Antonio (Baptiste) Allaria, 22, was born in Molini di Triora, Provincia di Imperia, Italy on 31 May 1889, the son of Antonio and Maria Anna Caldani. When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6 April 1912, he gave his address as 9 Orchard Place, (Southampton). His last ship had been the Olympic. Allaria died in the sinking, his body was later recovered by the cable-ship MacKay Bennett (#221) and was buried at Fairview Cemetery, Halifax, Nova Scotia, on 6 May 1912.
