This is a Section about the Captain of the Titanic, Edward John Smith. It is and will be created from differant places and sources.
Captain Smith was an Only Child but he did have a half sister and brother
The Captain’s decentants down stop at Simon & Priscilla as they had no children.
So taking those two facts about Captain Smith, anyone claiming to be related as a direct decendant would be incorrect. The best we have for the dear Captain is that he can be an Uncle or Cousin.
Captain Smith is my Great Great Uncle, as my Grandmother had told me, I have from time to time done some research on this and what I have found I posted at the Enchanted Family Website It time I am sure I will post it here too!
I will be adding to this section and welcome anyone else that has interesting reading about the Captain to post it here too!
As far as geneology history, I am Kathleen Alice Evans, Daughter of John Phillip Rouse, Granddaughter of Francis Rouse (maiden name of Smith). It was my grandmother that told me the that her Great Uncle that was the Captain of the R.M.S. Titanic which was Edward John Smith. Of course this also makes him a Great Great Grand Uncle of mine (I think I got the greats and grand right) I learned of all this one day while I was at my grandmothers watching a wonderful titanic movie on her television, My Grandmother told me this and at first I did not believe her, so she took me to where she had a bunch of old photo albums showed me some old photos of Captain Smith standing with other members of the family. These were pictures of like family reunions and such. (on a sad note, by the time I grew up and actually understand fully the improtance of those pictures, they had already been distoryed in a fire). My Grandmother’s Parents were Leonard L. Smith and Sarah Sadie Smith both born in England they were from the Coventry area and married in 1867.
