The Angie L. Marshall

Drowns While Hauling Trawls

With her flag at half mast, sch. Angie L. Marshall is at the Boston pier this morning, having lost one of her crew, Arthur Loyde, on Georges last Monday.  It is believed that Loyde, while hauling his trawls, pitched out of his dory, which is understood to have been picked up by another craft fishing in the vicinity at the time.

Loyde  was a native of Cape Sable, N. S., and had been fishing for a number of years.  He leaves a widow and several children, residing in East Boston.

Fisherman Believed Drowned at Sea
Turns Up Safe and Sound

Grief was soon turned into joy last evening for the family of Arthur Loyde of East Boston, when it was learned that the husband and father who had been mourned as dead was safe and sound.  Loyde, one of the crew of sch. Angie L. Marshall, failed to return to his craft on Georges, after stetting out in a dory to haul his trawls.  A search was made for the missing man and some time later, the Marshall was hailed by another craft and received the information that the dory had been picked up by one of the fleet.  The captain and crew of the Marshall also understood that the dory was empty, however, and it was taken for granted that Loyde had pitched out of his dory and was drowned.

The Marshall arrived at Boston yesterday with her flag at half-mast for the supposed drowned man.  Last evening, however, sch. Henry Ford of this port, Capt. Steve Post, arrived at the pier, having Loyde, very much alive, on board.

Explanations were soon in order.  It developed that the Ford had picked up Loyde and his dory and in passing the story of the rescue to a craft on Georges, there was a misunderstanding, resulting in supposed drowning of the man.

Loyde lost no time in repairing to his home at East Boston, where there was a joyous reunion with his wife and family.
