    Does anyone know of the passenger list for the Carpathia before picking up the Titanic Survivors?

    Chris, This is next to no help for you but I have seen a listing of the 1st and 2nd class passengers somewhere on the net. I did a quick search and was not able to easily identify the site. I think I printed off the list and if I can find the printout I'll post the address here. Anyway, what you are looking for is somewhere out there in cyberspace! Lou

    Just for interest, Mrs S.C. Vandeventer was Mrs Silas C. Van Deventer of St. Louis. She had been born Margaret Cowell. Mrs Albert Huber was her daughter Maude, while P. O. Vandeventer was her son, Percy Onward. (Thanks to Dave Lossos).Wallace Bradford was travelling with his wife, Agnes. Miss Birkhead was the niece of Miss Sue Eva Rule. Both had been born in Louisiana, but lived in St. Louis. Mrs Iddiols was Olga. Also Frank Blackmarr returned to America with Cecil R. Frances later in the year. Regards Craig

    'Carpathia' First Class passenger "Miss Mary H Fabin" on the Chicago Cunard Office list (as it was quoted in an earlier posting on this thread) should read: "Miss Mary H Fabian". Mary wrote of the rescue: while aboard.

    I was wondering if anyone knew the names and locations of passengers aboard the Carpathia that are still alive today?

    Has anybody found the full Carpathia passenger list (incl. 3rd class passengers)? I'm searching for my grand-grandmother /Mrs. Istvan (Stephen) Kucsmar, maiden name: Erzsebet (Elisabeth) Botka/ and her first husband /Mr. Istvan (Stephen) Kucsmar/ among the (3rd class, I suppose) passengers. They were coming back to their homeland, Hungary. She has died in 1961, 12 years before I was born, so all I have is a family legend of her voyage to America (including Carpathia and the Titanic disaster). Any help is welcome.

    Viktor, you might want to try running a search through the Ellis Island Archives at If you have full information concerning the passenger's first and last name as well as the date of birth, that would also be helpful.
