Pages from the coroner file of John Jacob Astor. The top image reads, “Astor, John Jacob, <of Fifth Ave, New York, USA> (Colonel) (No 124) Body identified by Captain Roberts of deceased’s Yacht. Body delivered to said Captain Roberts by order of William D. Fenn, <M.D.> Medical Examiner. Personal property <in Bag no. 124> delivered to Nicholas Ridell one of Exectutors of Est. late John Jacob Astor. April 30th 1912.” The second pages show the coroners report of the clothing and effects on Astor’s person. Notice the handwritten changes, possible made by Nicholas Ridell, who received Astor’s body and whose signature is at the bottom of the sheet.
