Through family records and spoken family history Nora Healy was my grandmother's sister. Nora Healy is listed in many sources including the book, "A Night To Remember" as a survivor of the Titanic Disaster and in fact she never took the voyage. After boarding the ship against her mother's wishes, she had Nora found and taken off the boat before it set sail. Therefore she should not be listed as a survivor. The fact they even mention the number of the lifeboat is a surprise. She also wasn't from Athenry but from a farm outside of Cork City, County Cork. She eventually did come to America on another ship some time later.
