Hi! I'm just now reading back posts on
, and found this one of yours! How interesting. So many lives have been lost to ship disasters. I
about a possible ancestor of mine who was one of the few to survive the wreck of the Faithful Steward. Another ship lost on the Great Lakes was the Phoenix, which was carrying over two hundred passengers from the same region of eastern Netherlands as my own ancestors. It burned within sight of Sheboygan, WI, iirc. The flood of emigrants from that area was abruptly halted -- almost everyone in the region had lost someone they knew in that tragedy. A few years later they started coming again, though.
