Titanic Passenger. William Thornton Carter II, 11, boarded the Titanic at Southampton with his father William Ernest Carter, his mother Lucile Polk and sister Lucile. Titanic legend has it that after no more boys were allowed onto life boats John Jacob Astor put a woman's hat on the boy and told him to join his mother and sister. The story was never confrmed since Carter as an adult was a recluse who never discussed the Titanic disaster.
