The Titanic

The unsinkable ship - the Titanic Read more >>

The RMS Titanic, a British ship, was built in Ireland beginning in 1909. She was completed in 1912 and her maiden voyage began in Southampton, England on April 10, 1912. She carried 2,224 passengers and crew.

On April 15, 1912, the Titanic (billed as the "unsinkable ship") hit an iceberg in the north Atlantic ocean and sank. More than 1500 passengers and crew were killed - including the naval architect of the Titanic. << Read less

Thomas Rowan Morrow, my Grandfather's second cousin. He was born in County Down, Ireland in 1881. His brother, Waddell, had emigrated three years earlier to work on a ranch hand near Gleichen, Alberta, Canada and he was going to join him there. My Grandfather, Arba C. Morrow was to meet him at the pier and put him up for a few days till he arranged his travel to Alberta. He boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 372622, £7 15s). He died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.

The captain of the Titanic, John Edward Smith, born January 27th, 1850, and died April 15th 1912 at the sinking of the RMS Titanic. As with much of the story surrounding the RMS Titanic, there are various opinions about Titanic's captain. Some say that John Edward Smith was a hero who stayed on the bridge until the last moment radioing for help. Others say, that regardless of what he did or did not do, as captain of the RMS Titanic all of the various failures (ship's speed, leaving dock without enough life boats, not filling up the life boats to full capacity, and etc.) were ultimately his responsibility.

The iceberg that sank the Titanic is seen here from a distance. The photo was taken from the S.S. CARPATHIA, the ship that picked up the survivors from the disaster.
Titanic survivor Molly Brown - the "unsinkable Molly Brown". Margaret Tobin Brown was on the Titanic on its maiden voyage when it hit an iceberg. She made the crew of lifeboat 6 return to try to find other survivors, giving rise to the legend of a spunky, vocal woman. But then, she was all of that. Though both her husband and she were born of Irish immigrants, they rose to wealth and never forgot their roots. Debbie Reynolds played Molly Brown in the movie musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown".
