Hoosier Capitalist Missing

Newspaper portrait of John B. Crafton

The name of John B. Crafton of Roachdale, Ind., appears on the list of passengers of the White Star liner Titanic.  No word has been received regarding Mr. Crafton. He was not among the survivors brought to New York by the Cunard liner Carpathia, and it is feared he is among those carried down with the great liner. Mrs. Crafton and one son, Harry R. Crafton, are at Roachdale anxiously awaiting word from Mr. Crafton. The Roachdale man formerly was a stone field promoter of Monroe Conty, but recently had acquired heavy lumber interests in the South.
