The Anne and Mary


Sch. Anne and Mary, 72.29 tons gross and 68.68 tons net tonnage, built in Essex in 1881, sailed from port October 1, 1897 on a Georges handline trip. She put into South West harbor, Me., about the middle of the same month for bait, and was probably lost in one of the severe gales which occurred in November, as no further tidings of her were ever received. The vessel was owned by her master, John E. Sigsworth, and was valued at $4500 and insured by the china Mutual Insurance Company for $2700 on the vessel and $800 on the outfits. Her crew list is as follows:
