The Countess, her cousin and maid were rescued in lifeboat 8.  She took the tiller, asking her cousin to assist her until she went to comfort a young newlywed whose husband had remained behind on the sinking liner. There she remained for the duration of the night, rowing all the while and helping to boost the morale of other women until their lifeboat was picked up by the RMS Carpathia. As a token of his esteem, Jones later presented her with the brass number plate from their lifeboat.

The walnut humidor was discovered gathering dust on a bedroom cabinet in the Merseyside home of Hilary Mee.  Ms Mee said she had no idea the item was connected to the ill-fated vessel, even though it had been lying around her home for 20 years.

The 1916 Easter Rising: Edward Daly Executed, Dublin Ireland

Edward Ned Daly 1916 Easter Rising

Archibald Gracie, a self-proclaimed amateur historian, had already written other historical accounts when he tackled the Titanic. He was actually on Titanic when she sank, pulled down with her, then propelled back to the surface by a strange surge of water. His account gives more of the story of the final moments of the sinking.  Gracie did extensive research from other first-hand accounts and included them, as well as transcription from the governmental hearings, in his book.
