Margaret Heslin parents

I am researching an aunt (by marriage), Margaret "Peggy" Heslin, b. 7 Jul 1922, NY, d. 22 Jun 1952, Ferriday, LA, m. Joe Oliver Buckley abt. 1942, NY. She was baptised in the Catholic Church, probably somewhere in New York and probably New York City. My uncle was serving in the Coast Guard during WWII when they met and after a night of drinking and partying, woke up the next morning and found they were married. That's information I know. She said she was born and raised in New York City and I trust she knew that for a fact. She also said that, either her mother or grandmother, and I believe it was her mother, was a survivor of the Titanic sinking. I met the lady in about 1946 or '47 and heard her tell her story, but I have no proof of the story. According to her, she was grown, so she could have been born bet. 1890-95. No Heslins are on the Titanic passenger list, so if the story is true, she was not married. That's all I know and can't get past the brick wall. Any info, such as how to check the baptismal records of the Catholic Church or anything whatever would be appreciated.
