John Joslyn, Mary Kellog and myself. Two of my favorite people and owners of the Titanic Museums in both Branson, MO and Pigeon Forge, TN. I was there to accept the Loving Cup that Margaret Brown presented to Captain Rostron of Carpathia from his Great Granddaughters, Margaret & Janet Rostron and install it into The Molly Brown Gallery in Pigeon Forge.

She was otherwise known as the Denver millionairess Mrs. Margaret Tobin (1867-1932). This surviving ushabti was just part of a cargo of Egyptian antiquities being shipped to the United States by Molly following a visit to Egypt. Read the fascinating story at egyptologynewsnet....
