Mary Sloan

Miss Mary Sloan

Miss Mary Sloan came from Belfast.


After the collision Mary saw Dr O'Loughlin and he confided to her that 'Child, things are very bad'. She also met Thomas Andrews who advised her 'It is very serious, but keep the bad news quiet, for fear of panic.'

Mary Sloan was standing by one of the boats which was being filled (probably Lifeboat 16. Thomas Andrews recognized her and asked why she was still there. She replied, "All my friends are staying behind. It would be mean to go." Andrews said, "It would be mean for you not to go. You must get in." Miss Sloan finally assented and was aboard the boat when it left the ship.
