FC: Timothy McCarthy BOrn January x, xxxx Boston Mass. April 14, 1912 RS Titanic

2: June 16, 2011 Austin, Texas My name is Karen Killoren and I am the great- grand daughter of Mr. TImothy McCarthy. While growing up, my parents and grandmother often spoke of our relative Timothy McCarthy and the fateful trip that he took on the RMS Titanic in April, 1912. I always felt a connection when the movie played on television. This was the original version of the movie and was in black and white. I remember hearing about a letter that Timothy had written to his family. I asked my mother to let me see the letter and was amazed at the handwriting, the letterhead, and of course the content of the letter. Over the years, I have shared this letter with other family members as well as museums and Titanic researchers. It was at the urging of a famous researcher that I moved forward with preparing this book. The letter is difficult to read in parts so I have included a "translation".

3: While this event will remain a terrible tragedy, I felt that it was worth sharing this letter in a book. The intention is not for this letter to be "enjoyed" but rather to be appreciated for it's historical and personal references. Timothy McCarthy was from Boston Mass. He worked for Jordan Marsh as a stationary buyer and was on a business trip in April 1912. Timothy had 4 children Justin, Edmond, name, and name. TImothy was in cabin xxx on the xxx deck.
