Eino Viljami Panula, 1 year old, was the son of Juha and Maria Panula. He boarded the Titanic at Southampton with his mother and 4 brothers. They were travelling to Coal Centre near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania to join their father, who was already working in the coal mines there.

Sadly, Eino died in the sinking, as did his entire family. In 2002, an identification of body #4 was made and the researchers believed it was his body.  The body, recovered by the MacKay Bennett, was determined to actually belong to Sidney Goodwin in 2007. Therefore, his remains, if recovered, were never identified.

Family members travelling on the same ticket:
Maija Emelia Abrahamintytar Panula, age 41
Jaako Arnold Panula, age 14
Ernesti Arvid Panula, age 16
Juha Niilo Panula, age 7
Urho Abraham Panula, age 2
