I was idly rereading some of David Zeni's wonderful book on the Empress of Ireland and my eye was caught by a mention of victim Mrs. F. E. Briggs Boynton of St. Thomas, Ontario where a local paper had reported that she had a sister who also perished on the Titanic?

Has anyone been able to verify if this is indeed accurate and who the Titanic passenger was?

Thanks,
Arthur

Hi Arthur, Having done extensive research into the lives of the Empress passengers for her final voyage, I can find only one reference in the contemporary press relating to Mrs. Boynton and a supposed relationship to a Titanic passenger. I'm certain it was the handiwork of a careless reporter.
