for geographical reasons, I have always liked Quigley Baxter, that hockey playing rascal, although his sister was a bit of a pain.
And I would have enjoyed talking to Stead, Millet and Chevré. And every single member of the orchestra.

Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order:

Fr Browne and the Odell Family (Thanks to them we have some physical idea of what life on the ship was like)
Esther Hart ( I wonder if she ever said "I told you so" )
Eva Hart, Edith Brown Haisman, and Ruth Becker ( These woman have brought the Titanic alive for me through their willingness to discuss something that many could not; I think that we owe a great deal to them, without their bravery in sharing their stories, many of us may never have understood the true meaning of the disaster.)
The Countess of Rothes(what a remarkable woman, the "plucky little countess" is someone that any school would be proud to have on their rowing team)
Molly Brown (who really couldn't like her; any one who threatens to throw Hitchens overboard is okay in my book!)
Madeleine Astor (imagine the dirty looks she got from the other first class women in the dining room)
Emily Ryerson ( I have often thought of what this disaster did to her life; first she lost her son, and then her husband; I admire her strength, many woman would have simply give up aften such trying times.)
Archibald Gracie (seems like we all have a friend like this; a little over-bearing, but fun to be around)
Hannah O'Brien (I am distantly related to her, through marriage, [her husband and my paternal Great Grandfather were first cousins]. She was my paternal Grandfather's Godmother, and he only knew a little of her tale. It was through this connection that my Grandfather first introduced me to Titanic, and my greatest wish would be to have known her.

I have many more, but I have lots of stuff to do; will probably continue with this later on.

Well I know that there is not much to the story of my Great Great Grandfather Col John Weir but I would have to say he is my favourite, and am suprised that he has not been mentioned as yet. Please see the archived thread on him if you have not already read it.
Kind Regards
