Mr Thomas Henry Conlin

Mr Thomas Henry Conlin, 31, had emigrated to America in his youth.  He had been visiting relatives in Arvagh, Co Cavan and was now returning to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where his sisters Annie and Rosa also lived.

He boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 21332, £7 14s 8d).

Conlon was possibly related to Kate and Margaret Murphy. When the ship was sinking he took off his coat and threw it to the girls in the lifeboat.

He lost his life in the disaster. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
