|Caton, Miss Annie||11||11||4.56|
From The Daily Examiner, Grafton, NSW on May 3rd 1937 (Miss Caton's married name was Howland):
"Mrs Howland said: 'For some time afterwards my friend and I remained in the cabin until an officer came down and asked what we were doing there. He ordered us on deck. It was then for the first time that I realised the ship was in danger.' …
It was the last boat but one that Mrs Howland and her girl friend escaped from the ship. ….
Mrs Howland described that descent from the deck of the vessel with 78 people in a small boat."
This account corroborated in The Hastings and St. Leonard’s Observer, May 4th 1912, where she says that she was with her room companion. Also The Barrier Miner of May 4th 1934.
It is very likely that Annie shared a berth with Maud Slocombe, since the ladies were employed in the same part of the ship. We are convinced Mrs Slocombe left the Titanic in lifeboat 11.
