From research (and the thoughtful nudges of the experts here at ET) I know that the Sages were on E-deck. However, it has been brought to my attention that these large Third Class families were separated, with women and children often in the stern, and older boys, their fathers, and single men housed in the bow. At what age were the boys required to go with their fathers, and [perhaps] older brothers? I would like to know because I wonder where a 9-year old would have been housed. Also, were the families allowed to go to each others cabins during the day? Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
