My grandpa Boone's parents came over from Belgium in the 1890's and I'd known for awhile that the family went back to Belgium in May 1912 and returned in June on the Antwerp. I'd always thought that they went over to see family but I found out from my Uncle that even though they did stick around for awhile to visit with the family, they'd actually gone over to retreive the rest of their belongings that their parents couldn't take with them when they first left Belgium and the family was going to ship their belongings from Belgium on the Titanic. She must have been on her way to Belgium when she sunk or Belgium was going to be a stop on her second maiden voyage! My Uncle Danny told me this at my grandma's funeral. It's amazing what you can learn at funerals!
