The Guy Cunningham


September 30, 1881

Sch. Guy Cunningham sailed on a grand Bank halibuting trip July 30, and was not afterwards heard form. 87.84 tons, built in Gloucester in 1877, and owned by Messrs. Pettingell & Thompson. Valued with outfits at $7000, on which there was $5895 insurance by the Gloucester Mutual Fishing Insurance Co., It is supposed that the vessel was run down at night by an ocean steamer as there had been no severe gale. It is also stated that one of the returned Bankers picked up on the Banks some 700 fathoms of trawl gear which the captain felt confident belonged to the Guy Cunningham.
