|RMS Carpathia in New York |
after rescuing survivors of the Titanic disaster
- One couple was a wealthy real estate developer and his wife, Frederick Orr Woodruff and Fannie (Sturtevant) Woodruff, who lived in Boston. I have documentation that they had been to Europe in 1901, so perhaps they went again?
- There was also my great-great grandmother, Maria (Pennell) Hoyt living in Ogunquit, Maine. She was a wealthy widow whose industrialist husband, CC Hoyt, had died in 1904 (he or they could have sailed, too, prior to his death during its first year in service, 1903).
- Another great-great grandmother, Mary (Ellis) Bunting, was in Toronto, also a wealthy widow.
- Finally, there was one great-great grandfather, Arthur Lapthorn Smith, a widower, who retired from Montréal to London during that period. Did he sail on the Carpathia?
