Body # 76 "Ethel"-looked over passenger listing-saw at least 2 "Ethels" But both survived. "etheL" name misread? Any ideas of ID?

So she came on the "Majestic" not Titanic!
Could reading of engraving of "Ethel" have been a mistake for "Edith" ak "Edith Corse Evans" who
boarded at Cherbourg?

A lot of the time, an older family members would give younger females a "piece of them to take with them" as a token of luck and remembrance. A piece of jewellery, a watch, photographs a book, could be anything. The name ETHEL may or may not even have anything to do with the victim's ID. The name would have been from a mother and sister or an aunt.

This was true among men too, although chances are they would have received something new to start a new life with.
