The Elizabeth W. Nunan


May 23, 1925

Drowned on Georges While Hauling Trawls

Thomas Fraser, 55, of East Boston, one of the crew of sch. Elizabeth W. Nunan, was drowned while hauling trawls on Georges last Saturday. 

The vessel arrived at the Boston Fish Pier with her flag at half-mast.   Capt. Richard Stanfield reported that Fraser with other members of the crew were out in single dories attending their trawls.  When it came time to pick the men up Capt. Stanfield found Fraser's dory empty.  The oars were missing.  It is believed he fell out of the dory as a result of heart failure and was drowned.

The unfortunate man is survived by his wife and one child.
