Utica Herald-Dispatch, April 20, 1912:
    “..Owing to the fact, as stated, that she was rather seasick, Mrs. Thorneycroft was not wholly prepared to retire. She felt the sudden jar and noticed the stopping of the engines and told her husband that the boat had struck something....they were told to get on their lifebelts and go to the second deck. The survivors in the lifeboats were compelled to stand up the entire time until picked up the following morning by the Carpathia....water came into the boat quite freely. Mrs. Thorneycroft was packed in next to one of the oarsmen in such a position that every time he pulled an oar it struck her so that she was bruised and lamed. There were no lamps or lights in the lifeboats, although there was a quantity of water and biscuits. Three lifeboats were tied together and remained in this condition all night. They were obliged to remain standing in the the lifeboat for seven or eight hours until picked up. Among those in the boat were a Mrs. Dean with a seven weeks old baby a little two-year-old boy, who was clad only in his night dress. Although having to go through such an experience the little chap suffered no serious after results, but the mother who was compelled to stand for so long and hold the little babe, was practically exhausted....Mrs. Thorneycroft spoke in the highest terms of the men who manned the boat in which she was....During the night and in the early morning many pieces of wreckage were seen in the water, but no bodies were seen by those in her boat.”

Utica Herald Dispatch, April 30, 1912:
    "Mrs. Thorneycroft was in the tenth lifeboat launched, which carried 55 survivors, the number later being increased by six men who were picked up from pieces of wreckage and who were nearly exhausted when found.  The boat was manned by three oarsmen.  They, with a Frenchman who was found hiding in the bottom after it had started were the only men taken in this boat from the sinking ship.  The oarsmen endeavored to put the Frenchman at the oars but found he was incapable of the work.
    Three lifeboats were tied together and remained in this condition all night."

Mrs. Thorneycroft's estimate of 55 survivors is very close to what we feel is the correct` number for #10.  Also, #10 is known to have an Armenian (the Frenchman) hiding in the bottom of the boat.  And #10 tied up with several other boats after leaving the Titanic.  We feel Thorneycroft and the Deans were definitely in #10.
