What ever happened to


could you tell me what ever happened to the following Titanic crewmen?Fredrick Barret,samual collins,Reginald Lee,Henry Baily,Jack Foley and Percival Blake.theiy must have died some time before 1983 when Sydney Daniels the last surviving Titanic crewman died(its what i read in Titanic A Journey Through Time).
 
Hi James, you might try going into the crew biographies which can be accessed on the index page. Don't be too surprised if some of them are incomplete. Researchers try their best, but some of the people...a lot of them in fact...led pretty ordinary and obscure lives, and some never made it off the ship alive. Frederick Barret for example died in the sinking.

Cordially,
Michael H. Standart
 
Uh, Mike, if your "Barret" is the same leading fireman "Frederick Barrett," he wasn't lost in the sinking. He was deposed a month later on board the Olympic in New York Harbor.

does anyone know what happened to jack foley he was my great great uncle.. until computers,the family thought he died on the titanic.. this has bugged me since I found out he didnt any info is appriciated
 
Jack Foley seems to be a man of mystery. There's no photo on this site, which suggests that they are pretty rare. He's not in the familiar books, such as Titanic Voices.

I notice that he joined in Belfast, so maybe he lived there. Try the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum.
 
Though he was living in Southampton in 1912, Jack Foley was indeed an Irishman (from Youghal in County Cork) and he has an entry in Senan Molony's The Irish aboard Titanic. No pic, unfortunately. Neither does the book shed any light on what happened to him after Titanic.

Though not 100% sure, Senan believes that Jack had worked as a blacksmith in Youghal, and that at the time of the 1901 census he had a wife Ellen and four children - Marianne, Bridget, Albina and Thomas.
