Synopsis: We lost cousins on the TITANIC and the LUSITANIA. The earliest in this trilogy of family sea disasters and perhaps the saddest of them all occurred in April of 1854 when the Italian passenger steamer, the ERCOLANO, heading from Genoa, Italy to Marseille, France was literally sliced in half by the brand new ironclad steamship SICILIA. Our cousin and her two little boys went from sleep to death that stormy midnight when their cabin took the direct hit. This is the story of that horrifying collision, of the passenger’s struggles, the trial and the final verdict of criminal negligence.
About the Author: PHYLLIS RYERSE is an Ohio Buckeye, now transplanted to the deep south where she lives surrounded by 4 children and 11 grandchildren. She has been doing historical research for many years and is an expert family historian. She has privately published many related family genealogies. That research resulted in the stunning discovery that 3 cousins lost their lives in tragic ship disasters. She has written the story of RICH MEN, POOR MEN, RYERSONS on the TITANIC, RYERSONS lost on the LUSITANIA, and finally The TRAGIC SINKING of the ERCOLANO, a story never before told. She is a natural storyteller. These stories are compelling, poignant and the lessons are sobering. Life is fragile and every moment should be savored and enjoyed.
