Patrick O'Keefe

Mr Patrick O'Keefe

Mr Patrick OKeeffe, 22, was born in 1890, the son of John O'Keefe and Catherine Fitzgerald.

Patrick, who lived at 2 Spring Garden Alley, Waterford City, Co Waterford, Ireland, boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 368402, 7 15s). He was travelling to New York City.

He is reported to have had a deep foreboding about his journey and is also said to have had a premonition about the Titanics fate. It is not believed that Patrick was travelling with anyone in particular, as was the case with many Irish passengers. On the night of the sinking Patrick escaped the sinking on a "raft", reportedly Collapsible B.

After the disaster Patrick settled in New York where he was married Ann Nolan (1905-1968). The couple had two children, Margaret and Edward (1).

Patrick O'Keefe died 16 December 1939.
