Almost Wordless Wednesday-Titanic Victims

These two young boys are James(11) and Walter(9) VanBilliard. They along with their father, Austin VanBilliard, were passengers on the Titanic coming from England. Their father was moving the family to America where he was from. His wife was ill so he left her and the other children to come join him later in Pennsylvania. One of the articles I found said that it was believed that the boys would not leave their father so they all perished. James was never identified. But Walter is buried with their father in Pennsylvania. They are distant cousins in my VanBilliard line.
