Mr Wilhelm Skoog, 40, was born 6 April 1872 in Forshem, Sweden the son of Anders Johanson and his wife.

Skoog was a mining engineer living in Hällekis, Västergötland, Sweden. He was married to Anna and they had four children: Harald, Karl, Mabel and Margit.

After their marriage Wilhem and Anna emigrated to USA and for some years lived in Iron Mountain, Michigan, where William was engineer at Pewabic mine. The family left iron Mountain in November 1911 but regretted the move after a few months and decided to return. Skoog was related to Ellen Petterson and Jenny Henriksson and they persuaded them to join.

They travelled via Stockholm, Gothenburg and Hull, before boarding the Titanic at Southampton. All of them died in the disaster. Only Jenny's body was recovered.

The Mansion House Fund paid 875.52 Kr (£48) to his parents. 911 Kr (£50) damage claims were paid to his parents plus an additional payemnt of 350 kr paid 28 June 1917. Wilhelm's father was not satisfied with the damage claims paid by White Star and with an American lawyer had his own private lawsuit against the company and refused to pay the ministry of foreign affairs any payments for their lawyer.
