I found a newspaper article listing the names of the crew of three ships embarking from New Bedford, MA and Fairview, MA in mid 1852. Thought I would try sharing the names of the men and their crew position in case folks were searching for them. This is tabbed data so I'm not sure how it's going to look, but it still may be searchable. Widen the window to see each person on one line. Please send me a message if you would like a copy of the document. this is just the first ship.
