Mr Niels Peder Jensen, 48, was a carpenter originally from Denmark, now living in Portland Oregon. Although unmarried he had a daughter, Julie Margarethe Geertsen in Lemvig, Denmark. His widowed mother lived in Peterstrup, Denmark.
He had been visiting his brother Christian and other family and convinced his younger relatives of the opportunities to be had in America. Therefore, when he returned in April 1912, he was accompanied by his cousins Svend Lauritz Jensen and Carla Jensen and her fiancé Hans Peder Jensen.
His body was never found. The Daily Telegraph Fund gave his mother £20 and the Mansion House Fund paid £60.
