Wow! ET has changed SO much while I was...gone. Anyways, finally I have time to post. Ok, I doubt the Unkown little boy was Eino Panula, aged 2. This is why: From Carpathia, a passenger saw a woman clutching a baby to herself in the water. Now, that may have been Alma Palsson with little Gosta. But then, where did Gosta disappear ? Or, could that lady be Maria Panula ? Plus, science isn't perfect. On a site(forgot which one) a WHILE ago I've read Eino is the Unknown Child, vecuase of the tooth sample taken from the poor little baby. They objected that the tooth was from a baby under one years old. But, we have to realize the sailors on MacKay Bennet described the baby as a 2 year old boy. So, he can't possibly be Gilbert Danbom (5 mos), and/or Alfred Peacock(7 mos). What I'm trying to say is that the scientists (sorry mom!) screwed up with this finding and viewing this tooth. This baby, (ok I do believe it was one of the Panula children, because blood samples were taken and matched with their family in Finland)might be Urho Panula, aged just 2. The mother thing, how sure are we that it was 29 year old Alma Palsson's body they have recovered ? Wouldn't it be logical that it was Maria Panula ? And that SHE was the one witnessed by Carpathia passengers in the ocean, but then eventually Urho floated away from her arms. History has ignored little Urho for all this time, when he might be it.
