WEST HOBOKEN MAN A PASSENGER ON THE LOST STEAMER

Hudson Observer

John Ashby, of Traphagen street, West Hoboken, is on the list of second cabin passengers of the ill-fated Titanic and so far his name has not appeared among those of the rescued. He was returning from England to his son-in-law and two daughters in North Hudson. Some member of the family has been at the White Star Line office every hour of the day and night in hope that he might not be among the missing when the final report arrived.

Mr. Ashby is the father-in-law of Greenwood Robinson, of 222 Central avenue, the proprietor of the Colonial Theatre, Demott street, West Hoboken. He also has a daughter living on Traphagen street and is well known throughout the town.
