23 - Simon Moulison, one of
the crew of sch. Parthia, washed overboard on Grand Bank. Capt. Jesse
Morton, of that same vessel, said that while he had encountered heavier winds, he
never saw a worse sea than was running during the gale. The vessel parted twice and was
struck by a heavy sea which hove her down, swept the deck, taking butts and oil barrels,
breaking booms and gaffs, smashing dories and ripping the battens off the hatches. The
vessel came back quickly and the crew went to work clearing the wreck of the dories away
from the main hatch so that they could batten it down again, when another sea came at
them. The men jumped for places of safety, but Moulison got caught between the dories and
was thrown heavily against the sail. Another of the crew, Henry Doucette, was
washed overboard, but was saved, although severely shaken up and receiving a bad sprain of
one of his ankles. Some idea of the height of the wave can be imagined when it is known
that one of the crew who stood on the tenth ratline of the main rigging, had his
sou'wester town off by the sea. The first sea hove the Parthia
down so far that her mast heads lay in the water and the cabin was filled, the stove being
overturned and everything to windward going into the leeward bunks. Everything possible
was done for Moulison, and he seemed to be better when Bay Bulls was reached. No bones
were broken, but it could be seen that he was injured internally. The best medical
attendance was secured at Bay Bulls, but Moulison died, and was buried there.
