The date of this biography is not listed but it must be of some years ago. My namesake cousin, Peter Widener Wetherill, passed away in 2010. One of his horses had just won the gold medal in the 2008 Olympics and was in the news. Many of my school mates had thought that it was me that had died! I never met him even though we lived close in Florida. I am not directly related to the Wideners and the Widners that went down with the Titanic, but I am related to a Titanic survivor by marriage, Emma Eliza Ward (Mrs. Bucknell). William Bucknell is my G.G,G. Grandfather by his first marriage, and I am also related to Eliza by my fathers step father Giles Price Wetherill who is Eliza's grandson. My father Frank Doster Wetherill's father and step father were cousins and both related to her! Giles is a second cousin to Cortwright Wetherill.
