John Hugo Ross among those not rescued

Chicago Examiner


     One of the Titanic victims was to visit Dr. Hugh H. Perry, 9515 Commercial avenue, the latter part of this week.  He was J. Hugo Ross, cousin of Dr. Perry and a wealthy real estate owner of Winnipeg, Canada.  His name appears among those not rescued by the Carpathia.

     Dr. Perry said last night that he had been making preparations for the visit of Mr. Ross, who annually makes a trip to France and England, and who usually stops over in Chicago  to visit him on his way home.  Mr. Ross is a son of A. W. Ross, the builder of the Canadian railway system and a former member of the Canadian Parliament.  Mr. Ross frequently came to Chicago on business.  Dr. Perry said, and had many Chicago friends.

     Dr. Perry also had several friends on the Titanic who are among those not accounted for.  They were T. Beattie and Mark Fortune, both of Winnipeg.  Mr. Fortune and his son are reported lost.  Mrs. Fortune and her daughters, Lucile and Alice are among those reported saved.
