Thread Name: Origins: Leaving of Liverpool
Subject: RE: Origins: Leaving of Liverpool
I am aquainted with the family of John Burgess, the Captain of the Davy Crockett. I have seen the double lock dispatch box from the ship, several boarding passes and bills of laden from this ship. My friend Berta has significant documentation and artifacts from the ship itself.
If any one who is interested will email me I'll be speaking to her this very afternoon and ask her if she would share any of this history outside the family.
