Elizabeth Bonnell

Miss Elizabeth (Lily) Bonnell, 58, was born in 1853/1854 in England the daughter of John Fearnley Bonnell and his wife Elizabeth Duffill Bonnell. Elizabeth never married and was a resident of Birkdale, England. She was making the trip to the United States with her niece, Caroline Bonnell. They had joined the family of George Dennick Wick on the trip, boarding at Southampton (ticket number 113783, £26 11s, Cabin C-103). Elizabeth was planning on visiting her brother, William Fearnley Bonnell of Cleveland, Ohio.

After the collision, Caroline found her in her stateroom and brought her up to A deck. The Bonnells and Wicks moved up to the boat deck where they were placed in lifeboat 8.

The Bonnells stayed at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City after leaving the Carpathia
