FEAR ELIZABETH FOLK WENT DOWN WITH TITANIC

Newark Star

ELIZABETH, April 17---Benjamin Peacock, of 609 South Broad street, is fearful that his two brothers, Ernest and Robert, were among those lost on the steamship Titanic. Mr. Peacock's wife and two children were also passengers on the boat, but it is probable that they were saved.

Frederick Jefferies, of 21B Erie street, now believes that his sister, Mrs. Peter H. Reniff, was saved, but it is understood that her husband and Mr. Jefferies's brothers, Clifford and Ernest, were lost.

The local lodge of Elks has started a fund for the relief of the steerage passengers of the Titanic who were saved. The following committee has been appointed: Welcome W. Bender, Abe J. David and George L. Hirtzel, jr.
