||Lifeboat from Titanic
||Lifeboat to Carpathia
|Chapman, Mr Joseph Charles||9
In September of 1912 Joseph Chapman wrote a letter to survivor Kate Buss (then Mrs. Willis). Across the top of the letter she wrote, “Unless I made an error this was a member of the crew who lent me a coat on lifeboat & to whom I mailed a little money after landing in N. York.”
While Kate Buss was given a 5.00 for boat 9, her lack of absolute confidence in who Joseph Chapman was, and as there was no other known source for his lifeboat, the group gave him a 4.00 for boat 9.
