I'm interested in finding out more about John Henry Chapman and his wife, Sarah Elizabeth Lawry Chapman. I first learned of their story from this site and am fascinated by their story. There isn't a whole lot of information about them online and some info conflicts. I would especially like to find photos of them but so far have been unable. I am thinking of writing a story based on them so any and all information would be appreciated.

Amy .. i realize your posting is quite old.. I'm sure you saw the Chapman story in the Gill Paul book 'Titanic-Love Stories'?

I have read that Sara Chapman was in the vicinity of both Lifeboat #4 and later Collapsible D when they were launched from the port side at 01:55 am and 02:05 am respectively. Reportedly she refused to leave her husband and so remained on the Titanic and died with him.
