Miss Jane Carr

Jane "Janie" Carr, 47, was born in Castlerock, Aclare, Tobbercurry, County Sligo, Ireland on 14 July 1864. She was the daughter of Thomas Carr and Bridget Goldrick and had three brothers and three sisters.

She originally emigrated to America in 1890 and worked as a domestic and cook in Springfield, Massachusetts. She later worked in Hartford, Connecticut and then at the home of Dr. C.A. Burnap of Windsor Locks, Connecticut as housekeeper and cook. Her last place of employment was as a cook at the Chicopee Falls Hotel.

She returned for an extended visit to Ireland in 1909. She was returning to America to settle her affairs and planned to return to Ireland and spend the rest of her life surrounded by her brothers and sisters and their families.

Janie Carr boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 368364, £7 15s).

She lost her life in the disaster. Her body, if recovered, was never identified.
