George Behe has mentioned this tidbit in the past, I believe. I think leading fireman Threlfall indicated that Shepherd was removed from the boiler room entirely, rather than being placed in the adjacent pump room.
Does anyone know who Jonathon Shepherd's family were? I am interested in parents and siblings, trying to see if he was a possible cousin. My grandfather was 5 when Titanic sank and remembers a cousin who was on board, my aunt thought the cousin survived and worked as an engineer, but the details could have been forgotten over time. Thanks...
Rae, some additional details are given in Craig Stringer's CD "Titanic People". Jonathon's parents were James B and Johanna Shepherd. He had 3 sisters: Frances, Margaret H and Ruth Dixon Shepherd. He broke a leg on the night of the disaster and died when Titanic sank. I suspect Brian Ticehurst may be in a position to provide some further details. Tony
Hello Ryan and Rae, have just read your thread. My mother is Jonathan's niece, we are the family of his brother Joseph. Maybe I can help with any further family details. Brian T has been a huge help over the years too.
