White Star Line.
Although the RMS Titanic was registered as a British ship, it was owned by the American tycoon, John Pierpont (J.P.) Morgan, whose company was the controlling trust and retained ownership of the White Star Line. Morgan had booked a spot on the Titanic but, he canceled at the last moment due to health issues. He died a little over a year after the Titanic sunk.

Twelve dogs were aboard the Titanic. Only three survived the sinking.

It is undocumented but, Ann Elizabeth Isham was said to have been in a lifeboat when she was told that she could not bring her Great Dane on board with her. She chose to get out of the lifeboat. She became one of four first class women passengers who died in the sinking. A few days later, a passenger on a passing ship reported seeing a woman's body floating in the ocean clinging to the body of a large dog but, the body was not recovered.

The Carpathia was the only ship to have rescued Titanic survivors. Coincidentally Charles Henry Marshall, Jr. was aboard that fateful day. His nieces, three sisters returning to the United States after a funeral were among the people saved.
