Hello all! I too had a relative who perished aboard the S.S. Sophia. He was my third cousin, Edward G. Wheeldon. He was a deckhand for one of the sternwheelers for the White Pass and Yukon Route. Anyone know how I can find out which sternwheeler he worked on? He was only 16 yrs old so there may not have been much in the way of records on him. He was returning to Vancouver, where his father lived, for the winter. I also own the books,"The Final Voyage of the Princess Sophia Did they all have to die" and "The Sinking of the Princess Sophia Taking the North Down with Her". I think it's great that they are doing a documentary on the accident!
