Photos of Titanic Children


Holly Peterson

Hello from Alzbeta! I am really interested in collecting pictures of the children and teenagers on the Titanic and I am wondering if anyone has or knows where to find a picture of the following:

Madeline Mellinger
Robertha Watt
Constance and Barbara West
Karen Abelseth
Virginia Emanuel
The Baclini children

Any help would be much appreciated but if you dont know where to find any that's okay too!

Finding all those may be something of a trick since there is no one single place where they're available. Keep in mind that most of the photos used by researchers in books and articles come by way of family photo collections. Not all of these people are interested in sharing them on line.

Holly Peterson

I would greatly, greatly appreciate it if you could post the picture of Virginia!!!!!

And a belated thank you for the two sites, Kathleen. They were very helpful.

I would be extremely grateful for any pictures of Titanic children, Hildur. Do you have any of:

- Madeline Mellinger
- Robertha Watt
- the West children
- the Nicola-Yarred children
- the Touma children
- the Baclini children
- the Peter-Joseph children
- Virginia Emanuel
- Karen Abelseth
- Helen Corr

Please respond if you do! I would be very, very, very grateful to you!

Well i know off heart (i'm currently not at home) that i have a photo of Elias Nicola-Yarred taken aboard Carpathia, and i have a photo of David Baclini (younger brother of the Baclini girls and born in 1913. I'll check around. I also think, i possibly have one of Karen Abelseth.

Holly Peterson

To see those pictures would be amazing! I would be so grateful to you if you could post those pictures (when you have time, of course, there's no rush.) But thank you very much for your kindness, Hildur!

I have pictures of a few of the above and would be more than willing to share them with you, Hildur, but unfortunately I don't know how to paste them onto the message boards. Would you be okay if I sent you a private message with some of the pictures? I'd love to help as long as it's allright with you.

That would be great: You can send them to my e-mail address: [email protected]

Well, i do know how to post (as i post a lot of pics), so maybe i could help out.
For future postings, press the "insert image/document" (or for larger pics try the "upload oversize image" for posting pictures and documents.

I would be very greatful for any pics you could send me as i could add them to my personal portfolios on each person.

The second I saw those beautiful, beautiful pictures I burst out crying. Then I ran upstairs screaming my head off to tell my mother. You have no idea how many years I have spent looking for a picture of Robertha, only to resign myself to the thought that no picture existed of her. I cannot describe how grateful I am to you for finding those pictures. Hildur, I am forever in your debt. Thank you so much!!!!

Alright, so first off if anyone has seen "Ghosts of the Abyss" then you will know what i am talking about.
In the film, in the third or second last scene, there are several photos that quickly scan across the screen. I have attempted to identify the children (which is easier considering the Titanic population with adults) and i believe i have possibly identified the as such:
Catherine and William Johnston
Robina Maggie Ford
Thomas Sage (different photo that family photo)(seperate photo than photo of family or Thomas)
John, Dorothy and Stella Sage,
Alfred Peacock and mother (different photo that than the one floating around on this site)
and Gilbert Danbom(different photo also)

Holly Peterson

Cool! I've never seen pictures of some of those children before. I'll try and find the film on Youtube and see if I can identify any of them.

Alright so just to help identify the photos, i can give an idea about the ages in the photos:

The ages in brackets are the approximate ages of the people in the pictures:

Catherine and William Johnston
(both children were extremely close in age, it's difficult to see who is older than who, but i place their ages between 7-9, which also fits the Johnston children)

Robina Maggie Ford (6-7)

Thomas Sage (3-4)(different photo that family photo)(seperate photo than photo of family or Thomas)

John, Dorothy(12-14) and Stella Sage (17-20),
Alfred Peacock and mother (different photo that than the one floating around on this site)(5-7m)

and Gilbert Danbom(different photo also)(3-5m)

Okay, so in order to better identify these childner, i have included a detailed description of each picture, to the best of my ability given the state of the photos.
They have all come from VICTIMS of the disaster, in the movie "Ghosts of the Abyss"
