hi all,
I'm a huge enthusiast in Titanic, Lusitania and the Empress of Ireland.
I was doing some research on the Empress and have a few questions
How old were Alfred Cecil Archer, Lionel Axten, Winnifred Griffin, Owen Hepburn, Ralph and Tom Nuttall (Where they aged 4 and 3 months?) and Willard Potter.
Also was Sarah Smith Patterson a child, if so, how old was she? and what was C Evans called and how old was she?(She was travelling with her dad Ernest and mum Emma)

I would really appreciate it if you replied

Hi Reece,

Of the names on your list there are several adults - Louisa Hobbs, Mary Johnson, Sarah Russell (her sister, Mrs Kerr was also on board), Maud Smith, Violet Varney, May Woodard and Sarah Woodwards. The others were all children, as far as I know. I have no age for Mary Babezuk or Tane Forstrom.

Ella Bronken (10)
Lilian Howell (10)
Orvokki Maki (2)
Kathline Mawby 92)
Frances Pratt (2)
Florence Taylor (12)

Best wishes
Craig

Does anyone have info on Miss C. Evans of Second class? She seems to be quite a mystery passenger along with Infant McGachen, Mary Babezuk and Master Willie Leeks who seems to be travelling alone. Does anyone know the names and ages of C Evans and Infant McGachen??

Hi Reece,

I should have said before that Willie Leeks wasn't travelling alone. Newspaper articles in 1914 recount that he was being taken to relatives in England after the death of his mother. He was being cared for by the Burrows family.

Interestingly, the Farr girls in second class were also travelling to relatives in England under the care of an older woman, but I have never been able to identify who she is.

Weren't the Farr girls travelling with Miss Mary Wood. She seems to be the only other woman travelling from Regina, Saskatchenwan?

It is possible that Mary Wood was escorting the Farr girls. As you say, they were travelling from the same part of Canada. I have speculated that before, but it would be better to have some evidence.
