The grave of Titanic victim Joseph Dawson, 23, attracts more visitors than the grave of the Unkown Child in Fairview Lawn Cemetery, Halifax, N.S.
The cemetery’s caretaker remarked that, ”After the movie I saw fathers with their daughters standing here crying. For two or three years that lasted. Instead of spring break fathers would bring their daughters here to see J. Dawson.” James Cameron’s Jack Dawson was not based off Joseph Dawson, Titanic's producer, John Landau, has said that, “It wasn’t until after the movie came out that we found out that there was a J. Dawson gravestone.”
Dawson was a trimmer as part of Titanic’s engine crew, although originally from Dublin he had moved to Southampton to look for work. His body was recovered but never claimed.
