There are many who like to hear about the people who were saved when it came to the Titanic that sank in 1912. There are many who were like you and I who were on board. Some of you might like to know about a few of those Titanic survivors. Here, you can read about some of the inspiring people who made it alive when the boat sank.
One of them was Miss Helene Barbara Baclini. When she boarded this boat, she boarded with her mother Latifia Baclini and her sisters who were Eugene and Maria. They were said to be rescued in what was called the collapsible C. She went on to get married, but later died of breast cancer. She died in New York Cityin 1939.
There was Mr. John Haggan. He was born in 1877. He was born to love the water as he was born into a seafaring family. He was a part of the Boer War. He boarded onto the Titanic when it was ported in Belfast. He was on his way to Southampton. They say he was on boat three. He went back to England. He never married and ended up passing away at the age of seventy three.
Another passenger was Miss Mary Agatha Glynn. When she went aboard the Titanic, she was only nineteen years of age. She embarked on this journey at Queenstown. She was only a third class passenger though. That is what many didn’t know about her. She was originally fromIreland. She was on her way to WashingtonD.C.She was said to have escaped in the lifeboat. This was lifeboat thirteen. She was assisted up to them by Mr. Gallagher himself.
Another person that was aboard and made it back alive when the Titanic sank was Miss Elizabeth Bonnell. She was sixty when she came aboard. When she was on the ship, she was going to theUnited States. She wasn’t traveling alone. She was traveling with her niece who was Caroline Bonnell. They were to join the family of George Dennick Wick.
When she was in the United States, it was said that she was going to visit her brother who was William Fearnley who was located in Cleveland, Ohio. When the collision happened, it was Caroline who found her. She brought her on up to the A deck. They moved up to the boat deck with the family who was on board as well with them and they were then put into lifeboat eight.
Then there was Master Michael Joseph who was six when he came aboard. He was the son of Lebanese immigrants. When he boarded the ship, he boarded with his mother and his sister. He didn’t know where his mother was nor his younger sister. They were sent to the collapsible C.
He was put into collapsible D. It is said that for the rest of his life, Michael hated icebergs because that is all he saw. He went to school where nuns learned of what he endured. Years later, both his parents died. He went to live with his uncle. It was often said that never liked to talk about this either. He would tell his grandson at times. He died inDetroit,Michiganin 1991. You can notice his grave as it has a picture of the Titanic on it.
It’s interesting to read about those who did survive. There are many more and they all range in age. They all range in importance as well. However, they all endured a lot.
