I heard a preacher use a story about him surviving the titanic and the loosatannia. (hope I spelled that right.) I was wandering if that was a true story. I think I spelled his last name right. I may be a little different. PLEASE HELP!

Thanks

Hallo, Timothy, and welcome. There are complete listings of passengers and crew here on this website and there is no reference to anybody called Chursh or Church on Titanic. I can't speak for the Lusitania.
 
One of the crew lists (the one published in Gardiner's book) lists a crewmember G. Church. However, subsequent research says this is probably seaman George Clench.
 
Michael, your musical knowledge does you credit.

It later occurred to me that the man in the tale might have been Arthur Priest! I'm a born ratbag.

I have something of a taste for classical. George Gershwin was something of a cynic after my own heart if some of that work is any indication.

Perhaps, there is no James Chursh (or Church) onboard. Probably. I checked the passenger list on this website and there is no James Church on the list.

Camille, if you check the time/date stamps on the posts above, you'll note that this discussion is over three and a half years old. It occurs to me that in the reference to the Lusitania made by the original poster that his preacher may have been repeating the Frank "lucky" Tower legend. (And Frank Tower was another man who never existed!)
