Ella Holmes White (December 18, 1856 – January 31, 1942)

Ella Holmes White (1856-1942), Mrs John Stuart White, came from New York, NY and lived at Briarcliff Manor, NY. She would later state that when in New York City she would always stay at the Waldorf-Astoria. She boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg with her maid Amelia Bissette and manservant Sante Ringhini. Travelling as a first class passenger Mrs White shared cabin C-32 with longtime companion Marie Young. Mrs White remained in her cabin for the entire voyage and only left it when roused by the collision which she described as if the ship had run over a thousand marbles. Mrs White and her maid were rescued in lifeboat 8. She later testified before the American Inquiry that the Titanic had broken in two before sinking. Ella White died in New York City at the age of 85. She was living at the Plaza Hotel when she died.
