The Ruth Groves


Saturday, December 7, 1883

Sch. Ruth Groves left this port on a Georges trip, Oct. 17th, put into Provincetown where she took her bait, and left the 21st. She was seen by several vessels previous to the gale of Nov. 12th and 13th, since which time no tidings of her have been received and all hope of her returning to port has been given up.
She had twelve men, as follows:

Horace Tuck, master, of Gloucester, leaves a widow and three children
Winslow DeCiamp of Shelburne, N. S. , married
Stanley Poole, Shelburne
Dennis Souier, Maine
Joseph Jameson
Maurice Powers,
Justine Guillot
William Seaboyer
Duncan Chisholm
Michael Hall,
Isaac Levache
Fred Allendorf

The last named shipped in Provincetown. So far as we can learn, those whose residence is not designated, were natives of the Provinces, but have followed the fisheries from this port several years. The Ruth Groves was built in Essex in 1867, and was 68.82 tons, owned by Messrs. James Mansfield & Sons, and insured in the Gloucester Mutual Fishing Insurance Co. for $3000 and $500 on the outfits.
