Miss Agnes McCoy, 28, boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 367226, £23, 5s). She was travelling to Brooklyn, New York with her siblings Alice and Bernard.

Agnes, Alice and Bernard were rescued in lifeboat 16.

Agnes died in mysterious circumstances on 14 January 1957. Officially recorded as a heart attack, numerous bruises were found on her neck and face. It is possible she died during a burglary of her apartment.  She is buried at St. John Cemetery, Middle Village, Queens, New York
