Looking For Mrs Coghlan

A Memory of Bideford

Hi, I had relatives that lived in Bideford and Northam. Mrs Annie Coghlan, (who was Annie Martin nee Woodland) who survived the Titanic, I'm trying to find out what happened to her after she survived the Titanic and before she died in 1936. I discovered that in the mid to late '20s she worked in the Royal Hotel, Bideford and she died in Combe Martin. In the article reporting Annie's death it said that she had a sister in Northam, I'm going to make an assumption that this was Phoebe Humby, as she died in Barnstable in 1951, and they seemed to be very close from the research I have already done. My relationship to both is that they are my great great aunts, I have no other contact with any living relatives from this branch of the family so any info about either of them would be greatly appreciated.
