  27. 27. Titanic’s location when it struck the iceberg
  28. 28. This is believed to be the iceberg that sank the Titanic. The photograph was taken from the deck of the Western Union Cable Ship, Mackay Bennett, commanded by Captain DeCarteret. The Mackay Bennett was one of the first ships to reach the scene of the Titanic disaster. According to Captain DeCarteret, this was the only berg at the scene of the sinking when he arrived. It was assumed, therefore, that was responsible for the tragedy. United States Coast Guard

  50. 50. • Special thanks to Carol Schwab for all the time and effort she has spent researching and sharing my grandmother's story. She has given many wonderful presentations on my grandmother. She has also put together a tribute scrapbook for family members. • The account that I was told by my aunts and uncles was that grandmother was the last person off on her side of the boat. That the people in the boat threatened to throw any one else in the water who was put in the boat. My grandmother being small was "thrown" in the boat by the captain. None of the recorded accounts tell the story like this. Each account tells the story a slightly different way.
