The Only Child
Helen Lorraine Allison was born on june 5, 1909 to Hudson and Bess Allison. They were going to America after a holiday on the Titanic with Lorraine(age 2) and Treavor, (age 16 months). They had a Nanny called Alice Cleaver whom is suspected of murdering her own child (Mr. & Mrs. Allison didn't know of her past) and several servants( the servants traveled in 2nd class).
On the sinking night, all were in bed when they were awoken by the steward. When they went to get the children, Treavor was gone! Alice Cleaver was awoken first and took Treavor and got into lifeboat 11. After searching, Mr. Allison got Bess and Lorraine into a lifeboat but after he was gone, Bess heard that her husband was on the other side so she got out and didn't find her husband so she searched for him. When they found him, all the boats were gone and they searched the ship until the ship sank. Lorraine was the only child to die from first class. They found Mr. Allison's body and buried him at sea. Alice later disappeared on a train. Treavor died of food poisoning at age 18.
