Schooner Lincoln – Afloat and Wrecked

Bill Hubbard looked into the Lincoln after my GMG post of 5/16/14 (http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/?s=schooner+lincoln). He discovered thr following information and photo: "I found that the schooner in the picture was the three-masted Lincoln. She was built in Essex by Arthur Dana Story and launched in 1920. She sailed out of Gloucester as a coasting schooner under several captains but continued to be owned by A.D. Story. She carried cargo of coal, lumber and potatoes from Maine and the Canadian Maritimes to Gloucester, New York and Boston.

Bill Hubbard looked into the Schooner Lincoln after my GMG post of 5/16/14 (http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/?s=schooner+lincoln). He discovered the following information and photo of her in Gloucester Harbor: “I found that the schooner in the picture was the three-masted Lincoln. She was built in Essex by Arthur Dana Story and launched in 1920. She sailed out of Gloucester as a coasting schooner under several captains but continued to be owned by A.D. Story. She carried cargo of coal, lumber and potatoes from Maine and the Canadian Maritimes to Gloucester, New York, and Boston.”

"In 1928 Schooner Lincoln was severely damaged when rammed by a steam collier, but her load of lumber kept her afloat until towed into Gloucester. Her cargo was salvaged, but the hull was declared a total loss. In 1931 she broke in two and her stern section floated ashore on Eastern Point." Thank you FOB Bill Hubbard!
