        I am the granddaughter of William chapman Peters. There is some information that is missing. He had more children in 1932, my father Raymond Philip Peters being one of them. My father then had 5 more children, and some living in UK and some living in Canada.

        I visited the Titanic exhibition in Branson, MO and was Christopher Mills the assistant butcher on the tour. I survived! My wife was Charlotte Cardeza, she had more luggage than anyone on the ship and stayed in the largest suites available and she too survived.

        Can someone tell me if he was ever in White Hall or Sheperdsville,WVa. Did he have a sister called Florence ? I have a diary by Florence where William shows up by either writing poems to his sister and drawing pictures of ships. The book is signed with the years 1889-1891. If anyone knows if he was there, I have pictures I can send to you showing his drawings. I read that he worked in the ship and of course was a survivor. I am just trying to connect the dots. It is a diary owned by his sister F...

        I would be interested to know where Gavin sourced some of the family information. The 1901 Census seems to show some of the brothers and sisters as children of a different Michael McNeill of Trien. I only ask as I am researching my own family history as would be grateful for more detail. Sean McNeill
