The Rutherford B. Hayes


December 14, 1883

Sch. Rutherford B. Hayes left port October 31st for a Georges trip and has been absent six weeks last Wednesday. She was seen the day before the breeze; not not since, and her owners have no hope of her return.
She had on board twelve men, as follows:

John Handran, master, leaves widow and three children in this city, 10 Willow street
Matthew Handran, single, brother to master
William Handran, cousin to the above two, leaves widow and two children
Henry C. Reeves, leaves widow, 13 Beacon street
Charles H. Browne, widow at 12 Liberty street
Alex. McAuley, widow and three children, one born since husband's absence
Nicholas Warren, leaves widow and two children, 13 Shepherd street
Michael Grinsell, widow and two children, 20 Shepherd street
James Sherman, a stranger
Joseph Sampson, steward
John Barnes
William Quick

The Rutherford B. Hayes was a first-class vessel, built in this city, in 1877, was 71.84 tons; insured in the Gloucester Mutual Fishing Office for $525 and nothing on outfits.
