        The colour the rockets is immaterial. Here are the standards regarding distress signals in 1912: (3.) Rockets or shells, throwing stars of any color or description, fired one at a time at short intervals. (4.) A continuous sounding with any fog-signal apparatus. The Titanic fired rockets one at a time at short intervals - complying with the distress signals. At the very least Lord's could have taken more steps to investigate - if only waking the wireless operator to check the signals. ...

        Hi, Patti. She is my (great), Aunt and I could possibly be of some assistance, if you're still looking for information.

        My name is Graig Burns from BC Canada. My great grand aunt went down with Titanic and we thought her name was Melba Burns, but Mary Delia is the only Burns on the lost passenger list and she may be related. My grampa was David William Burns from Auchengree Scotland, had originally come from Ireland and we thought it was Cairncastle Co. Antrim but that is not certain either. If Mary Delia had a brother named David William that would clear up some genealogical fuzz. address is [email protected]

        My name is Graig Burns from Salmon Arm BC Canada. My great grand aunt went down with the Titanic. We thought her name was Melba Burns, but Mary Delia might be the one. Grampa was named David William Burns, had resided in Auchengree Scotland before immigrating to Innisville Ontario Canada. We heard the story that he waited for the Titanic to arrive in Halifax to meet his sister "My Wee Blondie". If Mary Delia is the right one, she may have intended to meet with David in a stopover and then contin...

        I did come across this name from a different article John F. McDowell, from Springfield Australia who was saying he was the great great grandson of John Cotter for those of you that are interested. He must be family from the one that migrated to Australia.
