The Fears of Relatives : Parsons

Western Morning News

In connection with the Women’s Missionary Auxiliary at the Zion United Methodist Church, St. Austell, on Wednesday evening, Mr. W. J. Nicholls, who presided, referred to the loss of the Titanic. There were those in their own neighbourhood who had been plunged into the deepest distress by the disaster. He referred to the family represented by Mrs. Edith Parsons, wife of Rev. Harry Parsons. Mr. Parsons had a brother who had been chosen by the White Star Company because of his ability and trustworthiness to be chief storekeeper on the Titanic. It was feared that he had gone down with the other brave men, leaving a wife and four children, a widowed mother, and several brothers and sisters to mourn his loss.
