Description

On April 14, 1912, the unsinkable RMS Titanic struck an iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland, descending to the bottom of the Atlantic. Of the hundreds of people who lost their lives, several were bound for Orleans County and seeking employment in sandstone quarries at Holley and Albion. Several others, including Lillian Bentham of Holley, survived the disaster and relayed her experiences to local newspapers in the weeks following the event.
