The Last Survivor To Leave The Sinking Titanic Is Buried In A New Jersey Graveyard

You’ll find all kinds of interesting people buried in New Jersey graveyards including Walt Whitman, Grover Cleveland, Joey Ramone, and Whitney Houston, to name a few. One of the most fascinating people to be buried in New Jersey, however, is someone whose name you likely don’t know — even if you saw part of his story play out in one of the most famous movies of all time.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

In the iconic movie “Titanic,” Joughin can be seen — he’s played by actor Liam Tuohy. You can see him drinking a flask and throwing chairs into the water to be a flotation device, just like in real life.
