I don't know a great deal. I was told that my great great grandfather (maybe more greats) was a baby on the titanic. His mother name not known was a nurse working her way across the sea to America. His name was Babe Sweeney. They may have used the last name McSweeney. I know that someone in my family has an ashtray off the titanic. Also can not locate it.
I had a great-aunt and a great-uncle in second-class. Both survived. There real names were William Dye and Anne Mary Dye, but were traveling under unknown assumed names. He wrote an account, which I am going to post in "Introduce Yourself", if anyone would like to read it. Or, I might just make it an entire forum. I think that would be better.
I am the great-great-great-granddaughter of John Starr March, one of the five postmen on the Titanic. (All five died, attempting to save the mail.) There's some information on him here at this site- but I'm planning on making a website with all the pictures and newspaper articles and such that we have.
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.
Mark Bray; Since your looking for relatives of passengers,you've found one My father was "young Frankie" Frank Goldsmith. Charles B. Goldsmith, I can be reached at either of these to e-mail addys [email protected] [email protected] Always like to hear from others although they may no more than I do about Titanic. CBG
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.
wow these stories are very interesting. I am researching two families who were on the Titanic. The Davies and the Kelley's. If anyone has any info. or ideas on how to research them I could use all the help I could get! my email is [email protected] om thanks! ~Kayla~
