10 Real People Who Died on the Titanic

10 Real People Who Died on the Titanic


RMS Titanic, April 14th, 1912. Most passengers were fast asleep, blissfully
unaware of the nightmare they would soon wake up to. This is MajorTop10 and I invite you to join
me in honoring the lives of these 10 Real People Who Died on the Titanic. Ann Elizabeth Isham, an American first-class
passenger, was headed back to the states to spend the summer with her brother Edward in
Manhattan. Ann mostly kept to herself and her best friend,
a Great Dane, who was one of 12 dogs aboard the Titanic. Legend has it that Ann gave up her spot on
a lifeboat because her dog wasn’t allowed to come, and she couldn’t bear the thought
of leaving him behind. Ann was later found dead with her dog wrapped
tightly in her arms. Benjamin Guggenheim, an American millionaire
and first-class passenger, actually slept through the Titanic’s collision with the
iceberg, but was awakened by his mistress Leontine Aubart, who had felt the collision. Once Aubart and her maid were safe aboard
Lifeboat 9, Guggenheim donned his evening suit and remarked, “We’ve dressed in our
best and are prepared to go down as gentlemen!” He was last seen with his valet in the Grand
Staircase foyer, lounging in a deck chair, sipping brandy, and smoking his last cigar. John Jacob Astor IV, an American businessman
and the richest man aboard the Titanic, didn’t believe the Titanic collision was serious. In fact, he and his family were obliviously
riding the mechanical horses in the Titanic gymnasium as the first lifeboats were being
loaded. As Astor’s wife was being loaded onto Lifeboat
4, Astor asked the officer if he could join his wife. The officer replied, “No, sir, no man is
allowed on this boat or any of the boats until the ladies are off.” Astor was last seen alive smoking a cigarette
alongside American journalist and mystery writer, Jacques Futrelle. Isidor Straus, co-owner of Macy’s, and his
wife Ida were returning to the states from a trip to Europe. They were both offered spots on a lifeboat,
but selflessly refused, preferring the lives of other Titanic passengers over their own. They even secured a place on lifeboat 8 for
Ida’s maid, Ellen Bird. Ida, fully devoted to her husband Isidor stated,
“I will not be separated from my husband. As we have lived, so will we die, together.” Eyewitnesses reported seeing the couple standing
together on deck arm in arm, ready to face death together. Jack Phillips, the British senior wireless
operator aboard the Titanic, had just celebrated his 25th birthday on the second day of the
Titanic voyage. On April 14th at 10:55 pm, only 45 minutes
before the Titanic hit the iceberg, Phillips received a message from the SS Californian,
warning the Titanic of ice in the area. Unfortunately, Phillips, who had already received
multiple warnings about ice, responded by telling the wireless operator of the Californian
to shut up. When the Titanic hit the iceberg, Phillips
frantically sent out distress signals until 2:00 am the next morning when Captain Smith
came and relieved him of his duties. At this point, water was flooding into the
wireless room. Phillips was last seen racing towards the
aft of the Titanic, and never made it off the ship. Thomas Andrews, the British architect in charge
of designing the Titanic, was a first-class passenger on the Titanic and probably knew
the ship better than anyone else. In fact, Andrews had suggested the Titanic
have at least 46 lifeboats. Unfortunately, upper management for the Titanic
project overruled his suggestion and equipped the Titanic with a mere 20 lifeboats. When the Titanic hit the iceberg, Captain
Smith ordered Andrews to inspect the damage. Andrews, realizing the Titanic was doomed
to sink, made haste to put passengers on the lifeboats. He was last seen in the smoking room, eyes
fixed on the Plymouth Harbour painting over the fireplace. The Unknown Child, whose body was recovered
and buried in Halifax, Nova Scotia, remained unidentified until 2008 when a DNA analysis
conducted by Canadian researchers at Lakehead University revealed his identity as Sidney
Leslie Goodwin. Sidney, who was only 19 months old at the
time of the Titanic sinking, was the son of Frederick Joseph Goodwin and Augusta Tyler
from England. Sadly, the entire Goodwin family, which had
been traveling third-class, perished in the sinking. Bessie Waldo Allison, an American first-class
passenger, boarded the Titanic with her husband Hudson Allison, her young children Loraine
and Trevor, as well as four of the family’s servants. When the Titanic hit the iceberg, Bessie and
her daughter Loraine were placed on a lifeboat and would have left the Titanic safely, but
Bessie ran off the lifeboat in a panic to look for Trevor, her other child. Unbeknownst to Bessie, Trevor was safe on
another lifeboat with the family nurse. Bessie refused to leave the ship until she
found him. Regrettably, Bessie never found her son Trevor,
and she died in the sinking. In fact, Trevor, only 11 months at the time,
was the only surviving member of the Allison family. Elin Gerda Lindell was a Swedish third-class
passenger emigrating to the United States with her husband Edvard, a shoe factory worker. As the Titanic sank, they both managed to
reach the partially submerged collapsible A, but Elin fell in the water, and Edvard
was too weak to pull her out. As Elin drifted away and drowned, Edvard watched
helplessly while tightly clutching Elin’s wedding ring. Edvard, stricken with grief, died from the
cold with his wife’s wedding ring still in his hand. Annie Clemmer Funk, an American missionary
who boarded the Titanic as a second-class passenger, was asleep in her cabin when the
Titanic struck the iceberg. A steward came to her door to wake her, relay
the news and tell her to get dressed and go up on deck. Annie was about to take the last seat on one
of the lifeboats, when a distraught woman came pushing her aside and yelling, “My
children, my children.” Annie allowed the woman to take the last seat
on the lifeboat and took her place alongside the more than 1,500 people anxiously awaiting
that terrible moment when the Titanic would plunge beneath those murky and frigid waters. Please take a moment and honor the memory
