Mirror, May 4, 1912, Stewardess
"One of our women was a
Portuguese, 21 years of age, who had only recently
been married. She was in a state of hysteria for her
husband was on the ship...''
Daily Mercury, April 30, 1912,Stewardesses
Gold, Leather and Martin in boat #11:
"Another of the women passengers
in this lifeboat was a Portuguese bride on her
honeymoon, whose husband was lost. A pathetic scene
was witnessed in the early morning when the
Carpathia appeared in sight. The bride was full of
joy in the belief that it was still the Titanic, and
that her husband, consequently, was safe. When she
was disillusioned her grief was something terrible
to witness. She broke down and cried piteously,
being quite inconsolable."
Mrs. Del Carlo, an Italian, was a bride of two months
on the Titanic. We are not aware of any
Portuguese women on the Titanic who were widowed,
and consequently we think the 'Portuguese'
identifications were in error.
