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.

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.

Address: Cedar Lawn Cemetery, 200 McLean Blvd, Paterson, NJ 07504, USA
