Loss of the Ocean Friend. Feelings of Sadness in Carbonear.
(To the Editor of the Colonist). Carbonear, Sept. 23rd, 1887.
Sir, - You will, no doubt, be sorry to learn that a feeling of sad gloom hangs over our town, owing to the loss of the Ocean Friend - a schr. of some 80 tons. The vessel, which was only a little over six years old, and of American build, left for the bank fishery about eight weeks ago, having on board fourteen men and a boy (not sixteen as reported in your columns Wednesday). ... On the 15th inst., a telegram was received from Burin by the owner, W. Duff, Esq., of the firm Messers Duff & Balmer [sic], stating that the schooner was lost on the Grand Bank. This report was confirmed on the 21st, by Capt. Moore, of the schooner Lizzie, of Heart's Content, who stated he was on board the wreck on the 6th; but no bodies were to be seen. ...
In consequence of this calamity, ten poor women are left widows, and twenty-four children fatherless. ... The names of the crew are as follows: - Robert Wareham, of Salmon Cove, Conception bay, who leaves an aged mother, a wife and six children. This man's brother was lost with wife and family on the White Bear Islands, two years ago. Simon Luther, of Carbonear, leaves a widow and three children. Robert Penny (Carbonear), a widow and five children. His son, a boy of fourteen, was also lost. Thomas Howell (Carbonear), a widow and two children; Thomas Clark (Carbonear), a widow and four children; Reubin Pike (Carbonear), a widow and two children; Jourdain Pike (Carbonear), a widow and one child; Richard Penny (Carbonear), a widow and one child; William Penny (Carbonear), and Noah Hull, of Trinity Bay, each leaves a widow. Reubin French, Thomas Power, Nehemiah Ash, and Edward Penny (captain), all of Carbonear, were unmarried. To add to the sadness of this recital, two of these poor women are shortly expecting an addition to their poor fatherless families. The eldest of the children is not more than twelve years of age. ... John Goodison Jno. W. Vickers. ...
