Well, you can file this under, "I had no idea!" Monday marked the 107th anniversary of the sinking of the HMS Titanic. It's estimated more than 1,500 passengers on that maiden voyage lost their lives, one of the passengers was from Beaver Dam. 

I found this Facebook group called "History of Ohio County" and it's full of old pictures and on occasion, stories from the near and very distant past.

You can read the entry for April 15th right HERE.

I now have to find out more about James Hollan Bracken. Wow.
