My 3rd greatgrandfather came from Shipton, England on board the Sheridan, to New York in August 1849. I have the passenger list for this crossing. I have recently found the origional New York license for the Sheridan when it was built in 1837. I also have been in contact with a relative of Capt.Cornish. The captain in 1849. I believe the Sheridan came from England in 1850 to New York. Then loaded a cargo bound for SanFransisco gold fields. after that she sailed to China and back to England.
I have a lot of holes in my info on the Sheridan. What is your interest? passenger list, sailing dates, etc?
Thanks for the reply
