True Titanic Tales: The Sage Family

Mr John Sage was from London, and after he and his eldest son George spent some time on a farm in Saskatchewan he decided to go into fruit farming, and purchased a farm in Jacksonville, Florida. He booked third class passage on the Titanic with his wife, Annie, and their nine children, Stella (20), George (19), Douglas (18) Frederick (16), Dorothy (14), Anthony (12), Elizabeth (10), Constance (7), and Thomas (4). They boarded the ship in Southampton, and in Queenstown sent a postcard off to family saying they were "getting on well".

The entire family lost their lives when the ship went down. Only the body of Anthony was found, and he was buried at sea on Monday, April 22, 1912.

Special thanks to Encyclopedia Titanica for helping me fill in all the facts.

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
