The Goodwin Family

The Goodwin Family, all passengers on the RMS Titanic

The Goodwin family - two parents and six children - were traveling on the Titanic during the ship's maiden voyage.  They were steerage passengers who all perished when the ship sank.

  • William (13);  
  • Frederick (40); 
  • Charles E. (14); 
  • Lilian (16); 
  • Augusta (40); 
  • Jessie (12); 
  • Harold (10) is at the center of the photo.  
Only one body of the entire Goodwin family was recovered at the wreck scene.
