Description

The program for the 100 year memorial ceremony remembering Roderick Perry Taylor and the 564 persons who lost their lives on the R.M.S. Leinster. The event was put together by the Geneva Historical & Genealogical Society, Inc. The four-page program contains a description of Charles S. Lee, whose dictated account provided the basis for understanding Taylor's story, an outline of the ceremony's events, and a description of the sinking of the R.M.S. Leinster.

The Geneva Historical & Genealogical Society, Inc. held a 100 year memorial on October 10, 2018, for Roderick Perry Taylor of Geneva, Florida, and the other 564 people who died on the R.M.S. Leinster when it was hit by three German torpedoes in the Irish Sea on Oct. 10, 1918. Most of those killed were young military men and women. The ceremony was held at 2:00 PM at the Geneva Community Center. While memorials were also held on the same day in Ireland and other Allied countries, this was the only memorial in the United States that honored the six American soldiers who drowned.
