Hello here Joey!
I stumbled across your site when looking for research info on a drydock incident on Aug 22 1877. Yes, that does read 1877! Seems I’m 4th and 5th generation removed from immigrants that made Gloucester and the seas their home and workplace for many years.
I’ve discovered that my great great grandfather had several ships out of Gloucester and even gave congressional testimonial about the Fortune Bay boardings. What I can’t seem to find is the Aug. 1877 editon of the Cape Anne Advertiser that covered my Great, great, great, grandfathers accidental dry dock Death.
Being such a great representative of all things Gloucester can you point me in the right direction?
