Actually I don't think that was his mother, If you look up violet jessop on wikipedia it says " Records indicate that the only baby on boat 16 was Assad Thomas, who was handed to Edwinda Troutt, and later reunited with his mother on the Carpathia."  :) (not meant to be rude in any way)

Yes plese do look it up on Wikipedia. If you do you will also see you are wrong. Assad was the only baby on life boat 16 and was handed to Violet Jessop (Not Edwinda Troutt) who then cared for the baby until their rescue the next morning. While on the Carpathia someone (Possibly Edwinda) took the baby from her without saying a word and Jiolet never saw the baby again. It was later reported that the baby was reunited with the mother (Who could possibly have been the one who took the baby away from Violet, no one really knows if its the mother or Edwinda). Violet documents all this in her momoir's and later died in 1971 which was not that long ago and is the most current information anyone has. Also not meant to be rude but please do not correct people and direct them to sources which directly contradict your correction....

you actually read their comment all wrong. the baby was handed to Jessop before she got on the lifeboat and she was ordered to care for him. then the next morning when the rescue boat came, a woman ran up and took the baby without saying a word.. it wasn't until years later he was reunited with his mother.. that's what he was saying, and that's what your saying. so if you try to correct someone yourself, make sure you don't say the EXACT SAME THING they said. just because you reword it, don't gives it a different meaning

Actually, I did not read the comment wrong nor did I reword what they said. The original comment said Violet was given the baby to care for and when they arrived on the Carpathia the next morning the mother grabbed the baby and ran off without saying a word. Annie attempted to correct this statement by pointing to Wikipedia, NOT the greatest source first of all, and said that the baby was not handed to Violet but was instead handed to Edwinda Troutt. Her statement also said the baby was returned to the mother the next day on the Carpathia. I simply pointed out that Annie's reference was incorrect. The reference she used also said the baby was cared for by Violet and NOT Edwinda as she attempted to correct the original comment. So clearly not the same thing. Having said that, you have indicated that the baby was returned to the mother years later when I have yet to find anything that contradicts the statement that the baby was taken by a woman on the Carpathia the next morning and that the person who took the baby could possibly have been the baby's mother. Not saying that either you are wrong here or that either Annie or G14 is wrong. Was just saying please do not correct someone and point to a reference as your source when the reference supports the original comment and not the "correction".

jeesh.. for someone who also has no idea what all really happened, you sure are a nitpicky pain in the rear. I'm guessing you are a spinster, right?
