Mr. Arthur Larned Ryerson and his family boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg.  Their final destination was Cooperstown, New York.. Mrs. Ryerson’s maid, Miss Victorine Chaudanson, was travelling with the family..

The Ryerson’s were returning to America after learning that their son Arthur Ryerson Jr. had died. Ellen Ryerson, another of the Ryerson’s children (later Mrs. Salvatore) was not with the family aboard the Titanic. She died in New York in 1973.

Although he did not know it at the time, Mr. Ryerson’s 4th cousin, William Edwy Ryseron, was employed on Titanic as a steward in the dining saloon.

Arthur Ryerson was lost in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified. His wife and children were rescued in lifeboat #4 and survived the sinking.

Mr. Ryerson

The Ryerson family was on board Titanic to rush home after hearing about the death of their son.

“Arthur Larned Ryerson is the cousin of Benedict Arnold! Also, he is the distant cousin of Richard Spohn Brokaw, the victim of the worst massacre by a single man in known history. Brokaw died in the Atlantic ocean!”
