There were four persons on board well known at St. Keverne, Cornwall, their names being Jago Smith, a Post office official employed on board, who was to have been married shortly, and who is a son of Mr. John Smith, farmer, Trebarveth, St. Keverne; Mr. Hayden Sobey, quarryman of Porthallow, St. Keverne, who was emigrating. Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Old, the latter of whom is amongst the saved, were bound for Sacremento, California, after spending a holiday in Cornwall. Mrs. Old is a granddaughter of the respected ex-coxswain of the Porthoustock lifeboat, with whom she and her husband recently stayed.
