Charles Cresson Jones, the livestock superintendent at Fillmore Farm in Bennington, went to England to purchase Dorset Longhorn sheep. The owner of the farm provided a first class ticket on the Titanic for Mr. Jones’ return trip. Alden Graves told the story of Mr. Jones and the sinking of the Titanic at the Bennington Historical Society’s October 2012 meeting.
