    Thomas Cupper Mudd was my Grandfathers brother. I learned much about him from my grandfather over the decades. I would like to know the history of his last Letter home, of which I have a copy, and how it ultimately arrived in an auction?

    Jeremy, my name is Ben. My aunt was the last family member in possession of the post card from Thomas before it was ultimately put up for auction during the Titanic craze of the late 90's. It was handed down to my aunt from the 'Coe' side of the family. The post card belonged to her husband prior to his passing many years ago. I hope you get a notification that I have responded otherwise I might try looking you up on social media. Ben
