Mr Samuel James Hayden Sobey
Mr Samuel James Hayden Sobey (k/a Hayden), 25, was born in the latter part of 1886 in the village of Porthallow, Cornwall. He was the son of Richard Sobey (fisherman) and Mary Jane Sobey (née Hayden). He was the brother of Mary Elizabeth, William, Adelaide, Arthur and Thomas.
Hayden's occupation was that of a quarryman and he had left Cornwall to work in the copper mining region of Houghton, Michigan in the early 1900's. In early 1912 he returned to Cornwall for a family visit. For his return to America he travelled on Titanic, embarking at Southampton as a second class passenger (ticket number 29178, £13) along with his two friends Fred Banfield of Helston and Joseph Fillbrook of Truro who were also heading for Michigan.
Hayden was lost in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified.
