John Harper, passenger on theTitanic with his daughter and niece - #16 Harper was a Baptist preacher on his way to the U.S. with daughter and niece. On the tragic night, he put them in a lifeboat before he perished.
Isidor and Ida Straus perished during the sinking of the Titanic. On the night of the disaster, as the call to board the lifeboats went out, Isidor escorted Ida to Lifeboat 8 and prepared to say goodbye to her. Ida, however, refused to enter the small boat, saying, “We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go.” The Strauses were last seen seated side by side on Titanic’s Boat Deck.

He brought bagpipes on board with him, and played them at the raucous dance party in third class that occurred the night the Titanic struck the iceberg (James Cameron recreated the party in his 1997 movie 'Titanic').
