Engineer Sub Lieutenant Peter Caton, R.N.R., was a survivor of the Republic sinking, in January, 1909. In 1912, he had the opportunity to join the Titanic, but, owing to his wife not wanting to move from their home in Birkenhead, Merseyside, England, to Southampton, Peter Caton never went. He was serving on board the Laurentic at the time, having been serving on her since she had been taken over by the White Star Line. In January, 1917, he lost his daughter, Maude (aged 19), and 10 day's later sailed on the Laurentic, and was lost when that ship hit two mines and sank on the evening of 25th January, 1917. Could Peter Caton be related to Annie Caton ???

Have been doing research on Annie Caton. Here is what I've come up with

Annie Caton married William Howland, a shop keeper. They lived at 55 Berner St, Merewether, Newcastle, Australia. She gave a brief interview in 1934 to 'The Barrier Miner' .



"It was .almost impossible to think that anything could be wrong with such a leviathan," said Mrs. Howland, "were it not for the enomous tilt downwards in tho bows, where the water was by now up'to the lowest row of portholes. At about 2 o'clock she appeared to be settling rapidly, with the bows and the bridge completely under water. She slowly tilted straight on end with the stern verti-cally upwards. At the same time the boiler and machinery roared down through the vessel, with a glancing rattle that could have been heard for miles in the silence of the night It wa» certainly for some minutes that we saw ct least 150ft. of the Titanic towering up above the level of the sea, looming black and saddening against tho sky. Then, with a quiet, slanting dive she disappeared beneath the waters."

Don't you just love the National Library of Australia newspaper archive, Mike?

I do! I've passed the link onto quite a few researchers. We are lucky that many newspapers are now digitizing. Now, there's no excuse for researchers to just use the NYT for books and projects.
