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.
