Addie Wells boarded the Titanic with her two young children, Joan and Ralph, in Southampton. They were bound for Akron, Ohio, to join her husband, Arthur Henry Wells, who had come ahead of them to set up their new home. After the ship hit the iceberg, Addie gathered her children and headed for the boat deck. Once there they were all loaded onto lifeboat number fourteen, which was so crowded that Addie could not even sit down. After arriving in New York, Addie and the children were met by her husband and her brother, who had travelled all the way from Akron to meet them.
