Does anyone have more facts on this passenger? The site does not tell much about her. She must have been quite someone. After having just been widowed, she met (on Carpathia), and married fellow passenger Robert Daniel. While on Carpathia, another gentleman gave her $500, as described in "Sinking of the Titanic": "J. A. Shuttleworth, of Louisville, Ky., befriended Mrs. Lucien Smith, whose husband went down with the Titanic. Mr. Shuttleworth asked her if there wasn't something he could do for her. She said that all the money she had was lost on the Titanic, so Mr. Shuttleworth gave her $500."
