Mrs. Irene Colvin Corbett was the daughter of Bishop and Mrs. Levi A.
Colvin, having been born here and resided in this county all her life. She
went to England last October to study obstetrics and was on her way home, a
passenger on the ill-fated ship Titanic. The family has now given up hope of
recovering the body.
