Mr Percival Wayland White, 54, was married to Edith Frasar Wheeler and they had two sons, Percival jr. and Richard Frasar.

Percival Wayland White was a prominent and successful cotton manufacturer in Winchendon Springs, Massachusetts. A few years before they sailed on the Titanic, the White family moved from Winchendon Springs to Brunswick, Maine.

He boarded the Titanic, with his son Richard at Southampton following a tour of Europe. They travelled as first class passengers and occupied cabin D-26 (ticket number 35281, 77 5s 9d).

Both men lost their lives in the sinking. The body of Percival White was never found.
