John Coffey, a 23-year-old stoker, got on the Titanic at Queenstown, England by stowing away on a smaller boat used to load/unload the ship, and hiding with the mailbags destined for shore. A native of the town, he had probably joined the ship with this intention, but afterwards he said that the reason he got off the ship was that he held a bad feeling about the voyage. He later signed on to join the crew of the RMS Mauretania.
