George Kitto was married first to Susannah Pearce and had two children. By 1860 only Jane chr 1848 in England was living. George then married Elizabeth Wicks and had three children, Elizabeth, Sophia, and Mary. On the 7 Sept 1860, while returning from seeing husband and maybe the Lincoln-Douglas debate, Elizabeth with three children along with her sister, Eliza Bond and two children, were drowned on the "Lady Elgin". Which one of George Kitto's children survived? ( I have had it in my mind that all died, but the ship listed that she had three children with her. ) Was it her 12 year old step daughter?
