Oak Park Woman and Others Have Missing Relatives on the Sunken Titanic

Mr. and Mrs. F. R. Kenyon of New York, who were listed among the passengers on the Titanic, are relatives of Chicago people and have many friends among the prominent people of this city. Mrs. George P. Baldwin of Oak Park is a sister of Mrs. Kenyon. Since the first news of the disaster reached the city Mrs. Baldwin has been seeking some word of her sister. She has learned that Mrs. Kenyon is reported among those who were rescued by the Carpathia. No news of Mr. Kenyon has been received and it is feared that he is among the lost.

Mr. Kenyon amassed a fortune in the iron business. He was long associated with Charles G. Stevens, president of the steel company of that name, with offices at 38 South Jefferson street. The two men, with John Kirkpatrick, organized the West Leechburg Steel company. Mr. Baldwin is president of the Baldwin Investment company, with offices in the Monadnock building. He and his wife frequently entertained Mr. and Mrs. Kenyon, who made long visits in this city and established a wide acquaintanceship.
