Hello -interesting to find this thread...I am from CT originally - my grandparents - last name Rabbett - lived on School Street in Windsor Locks. My grandfather Richard, Sr., son of Irish immigrants, was born in CT 1906. When I was a teenager he recalled as a boy aged 6 in 1912 how his parents visited neighbors close by to comfort them over the loss of someone they knew who had not survived the Titanic sinking. This story has stayed with me for more than 30 years and is probably the reason I developed into a lover of the great ocean liners and have collected thousands of pieces of ocean liner memorabilia. I am departing on a Titanic memorial cruise from NYC on April 10 and sailing to Halifax and then to out directly over the Titanic wreck site on April 14/15 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the disaster. In preparation for the upcoming trip, I was reviewing names of Titanic passengers traveling to CT to see if I could perhaps find anything about the person my grandfather recalled not surviving to arrive in Windsor Locks, which is how I came upon the name of Jane Carr. Was her body recovered and if so, where was she buried? Is anything else known about her?As a CT native of Irish descent (and since my grandparents grew up and died in Windsor Locks), I will honor them - and her - by memorializing Ms. Carr over the Titanic wreck site on April 14/15.
