Subject: RE: Origins: Folk/Blues Songs: The Titanic Disaste
my father had a friend in Longview, Washington, named Pat Blessington..handsome old Irishman. He must have been around 80 say in 1956. He was 14 I think when the Titanic went down and survived. he lost his memory and they had to write to Ireland to find out who he was. That is all I know. Maybe I'll do agoogle search. Perhaps when he died there was a story of some kind.
