What happened to Titanic passengers with Lexington ties?

When the Titanic sank, the Lexington Leader, a predecessor of the Herald-Leader, reported on April 16, 1912, that two people on the Titanic had local connections: Eloise Hughes and J.B. Thayer Jr. The day's edition noted that Hughes was included on a list of survivors but Thayer's fate was unknown.
