In April 1912 Moraweck was living in Frankfort, KY. He boarded the Titanic at Southampton. During the voyage he shared a dining saloon table with Kate Buss. After the collision Dr Morawick met Kate and he offered to investigate the reason for the engines stopping.

Dr Morawick died in the sinking. In his will, dated 18 May 1904, in Louisville, Kentucky, Ernest left his worldly goods to his sister Claudina Coldewey (nee Moraweck), and his brother Alvin.


The name Moraweck has been written many ways, including Marawetz (as on the ship list showing the arrival in America of Ernest's father) and Morawick. However, the most common, and the one that appears on the wills of both Ernest and his father and on the tombstones of his parents, in Tell City, Indiana is Moraweck.
