ELIZABETH, April 19--- The wife and two children of Benjamin Peacock, of 609 South Broad street, perished on the Titanic, according to the list of those who were on the boat and whose names do not appear in the roster of those saved.

Mr. Peacock, who is employed in the power-house of the Public Service Corporation at Cranford, came to this country from England a year ago, leaving his wife and one child, then three years old, behind. After he arrived here another child was born, and Mr. Peacock had never seen it. He went to New York this morning to get further details of the tragedy.

Mr. Peacock’s two brothers in England had planned to sail on the Titanic’s maiden voyage, but they changed their plans at the eleventh hour.
