I don't know what newspaper articles you already have, but over the past year or so I've been copying, transcribing and posting to the Titanic mailing lists newspaper articles about Titanic and her New Jersey passengers. As you can imagine, "March" is a name I've come across quite a few times. Most of the articles which I've posted so far (and an index) can be found at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OceanicSteamNavigationCo/files/Titanic%20News%20Articles/

I'll check what I've copied but not yet transcribed to see if there's anything more. If there is, I'll let you know.

Dear Mark Bray,

Looks like you've gotten plenty of responses here. Bet that made you happy.

I didnt' realize this was an old thread until I got to Senan's post. I realized he isn't an active participant and so I noticed the date and said to myself, oh geez, i'm reading an old thread.

A guy at my workplace had a relative on Titanic who survived and he's an interesting guy. Sometimes he comes in to work dressed from the 18th century! Although he hasnt' spoken too much of his relative's experience aboard the great liner, he seems proud enough that he had a relative aboard the famous liner.

Sincerely,

Teri

Hello Family Members,

Just a note of thanks for taking the time to post for us. Your stories of your family are the lifeblood of Titanic and are what make her story so special.

In Appreciation,

Beverly

Dear Mark,

My name is Helen and I am the Great Great Grandaughter of Col John Weir - a first class passenger on the titanic who perished with her. There is a thread on him under Passanger Research.

Kind Regards

Helen

Hello Ernest,

The only black passenger thought to have been on board was Joseph Laroche, a Haitian national travelling from France to Haiti with his wife Juliette and young daughters Louise and Simonne. Their biographies can be found on this site.

Cheers,

Boz

This is a really good question Ernest.
The Jim Crow laws forbid african americans from being on the ship.
Thus, no african americans lost their lives.
An awakening of the black pride we see today.
There have been songs and poems written on this subject.
It has an important ingrediant for the whole.

Reguards, Don

Don, no African Americans were on board because none bought tickets. They were perfectly free to travel on British ships and on those of other nations. See the details on Jack Johnson on this site. I don't know whether blacks were carried on the few US liners of the time, but I suspect that those who could afford it were.

A member of the crew named T Joas may have been black. He came from the Cape Verde Islands, where hardly anybody is white, but very little is known of him.
