Is there information about the adult Washington Dodge, Jr., a child who survived the Titantic with his mother and father, Dr. Washington Dodge.

That's an interesting question.

Dr Washington Dodge was also called H Washington Dodge. There are a couple of H Washington Dodge's in the later city directories but none say Jr.

Good luck in your research.

Jane:

The website: http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org states:

Master Washington Dodge He was born on Monday 23rd September 1907 When the Titanic sank Washington Dodge was aged 4 years

He lived in San Francisco California United States

He boarded the Titanic as a 1st Class passenger at Southampton on Wednesday 10th April 1912 , Ticket No. 33638 , 81 17s 17d , Cabin No. A34

Destination: San Francisco California United States

Washington Dodge survived the sinking (boat 5) and was picked up by the Carpathia disembarking at New York City on Thursday 18th April 1912

He died on Tuesday 3rd December 1974 (Heart Failure / Disease) and was buried at Garden State Crematory North Bergen New Jersey United States

Travelling Companions (on same ticket) Dr Washington Dodge Mrs Ruth Dodge

He passed on in New York City so more information would be found in his NY Times obituary if his obituary was recorded in the Times. You can try the New York Times Obituary Index to determine if he was mentioned. I can check the index for you, copy the obituary for you, and send it to you if you so desire.

Good luck in your search.
