Mrs. Nelson L. Barnes Discusses Trip of J. Clinch Smith
J. Clinch Smith, artist, reported to be on board the Titanic, is the husband of a former Chicago girl, Bertha Barnes, sister of Nelson L. Barnes, a broker in the Rookery building.
"Mr. Smith was planning to visit New York," said Mrs. Barnes to a reporter for The Daily News to-day. "Mrs. Smith, my sister-in-law, is not on board ship with him, I am sure. She is living in Paris, where they have their home."
The Barnes home is at 22 East Ontario street.
