Madeleine Astor and son John in 1926

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Mrs. William K. Dick and her son John Jacob Astor, as they appeared on the S.S. Majestic. In 1912, a bride of seven months, she was saved, but her husband, John Jacob Astor, lost his life at the sinking of the Titanic. Their son was born a few months later. Mr. Astor’s will gave her $100,000 outright, and bequeathed her the income from a trust fund of $5,000,000 and the use of the Fifth avenue home in New York City. She relinquished both these on her marriage to Mr. Dick in 1916.
