Miss Margaret Edith Graham, 19, was born on Ferbuary 16, 1893, in Wheeling, West Virginia. She was the daugther of Mr William Thompson Graham and his wife Edith Junkins. In 1912 they lived in Greenwich, CT.

Margaret, her mother and governess Elizabeth Weed Shutes boarded the Titanic at Southampton. Margaret and Elizabeth occupied cabin C-125, her mother was in C-91.

When the Titanic hit the iceberg, Margaret was nibbling at a Chicken sandwich. Shutes asked a passing crewman if anything was wrong, the answer was 'No'. Then she looked at Margaret, who was so uneasy that the chicken kept falling from the bread.

Margaret, her mother ans Miss Shutes were helped to lifeboat 3 by Howard B. Case and Washington Augustus Roebling II. As the boat landed they watched Case calmly leaning against the rail, lighting a cigarette and waving goodbye.

Margaret married Mr Eugene M. Moore, the senior executive of a famous law firm, located in Stratford, Connecticut. Mrs Moore was active with the American Red Cross during World War II, and was active in local civic life thoughout her life.

Margaret died on April 25, 1976, leaving three children Margaret, Eugene jr, and William G. Moore. She was buried in Putnam Cemetery, in her hometown of Greenwich.
