        Thank you to Encyclopedia Titanica for providing such comprehensive research. I am a distant relative of Mary Anne and have added her to my family tree. I have credited Titanica with providing me with such helpful information.

        Robert John Adams was my grandfather Ernest Adams' brother. I do not believe Kate and Frederick were twins. In the 1891 census, Kate's age is given as 7 and Frederick's as 4. The '7' in the census for Kate's age could be read as a '4', but both Kate's marriage and death registrations in Ontario indicate she was born in 1884 as would the age 7 in in 1891 census. Robert was intending to settle in Canada after the Titanic voyage and his brother Ernest was traveling by train from Toronto to New Yo...

        according to the passenger list Trevor Hudson Allison was listed as age 19 the biography says he was much younger and he was the only member of that family listed among the survivors.

        May want to double check Lahtinen's age. A number of other web sources list his age as 35.

        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...
