Wright sailed to Europe on the Empress of Ireland in the autumn of 1911, and was in Paris when he learned of Titanic's maiden voyage. He apparently booked passage at the last minute; his name does not appear on the list of ship's passengers distributed during the voyage. He paid 26$ for his ticket, but there is no record of which cabin he was assigned, but it was a single berth cabin, probably on E Deck where many of the commercial travelers were booked. No one recalls seeing Wright on…

Mr George Wright is believed to have been born in Tufts Cove, Nova Scotia, on 26 October (There is some confusion about the exact date in the records). He was a farmer’s son, but during a visit to the U. Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia.

aniel Warner Marvin and Mary Graham Carmichael Farquarson were married on January 12, 1912. They boarded the Titanic at Southampton. Travelling as first class passengers, the couple were returning to New York City from their honeymoon in Europe. They occupied cabin D-30. "As I was put into the boat, he cried and said to me,"It's all right, little girl. You go. I will stay." As our boat shoved off he threw me a kiss, and that was the last I saw of him."

As the ship was sinking, Denis, who is sometimes listed as Timothy O’Brien in Titanic passenger records, wrote a note to Michael. He gave the note and his overcoat to a woman in a lifeboat and asked her to see that his brother got them. She did. A photo of my grandfather wearing what we have always called “the Titanic coat” holds a special place in the family archives.

Titanic: You might guess that Seattle film history and the sinking of the Titanic would have nothing to do with each other.  But you would be mistaken.  When the ship went down in the North Atlantic 100 years ago on April 15, a certain W.H. Harbeck was on board as its official filmmaker. And with his death at age 45 (or thereabouts), one of the most industrious and promising figures in the early movie-making industry was lost.

This photo of Katie Gilnagh (seated) and her sister Mary Boshell was taken after Gilnagh survived the sinking of the Titanic. Katie's mother in Ireland would not believe that Katie survived unless she saw a photo of her with Mary (who was already living in New York City). So the sisters had this photo made to prove to their mother that Katie had indeed survived.
