Mr James Matthew McCrie

Mr James Matthew McCrie, 30, was a worker on an oil rig in Arabia. He rushed back home, 503 North 16th Street, Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, because one of his three children was dying from tuberculosis and he wanted to comfort his distraught wife. His last place of abode was the Strand Palace Hotel in London.

Mr McCrie boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a second class passenger. He held ticket number 233478, price: 13.

He died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
