I have just signed up to the site (a great site) in order to relay the following fascinating old family story that resurfaced recently.
Mr T. Casey (see crew lists) was a trimmer on board the Titanic who died when the ship sank, his body never recovered.
This man, Casey, was my great, great uncle and we know that he did not die on the Titanic. He was due to sail but, after a few beers too many the night before the Titanic sailed, he fell asleep in his lodgings in Southampton only to wake up and find that everything he owned had been stolen, including his Titanic documentation.
We know this because he turned up on the doorstep alive and well in 1932, much to everyone's surprise! My Grandfather (Casey was his uncle on his mother's side) remembers this event clearly (he was 12 years old when Casey reappeared).
Therefore, the man lying at the bottom of the Atlantic is not Casey......
