TheFrances C. Denehy


March 19, 1937

Local Fisherman Lost From Deck - Dragger Denehy

Alfred Muise, 32 years of age, 40 Harbor terrace, was lost at sea from the Boston trawler Frances C. Denehy, off Cape Henry, Virginia, shortly before 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon.  The Denehy put into Norfolk, Va., early last night and Capt. Raymond Amerault, master, reported the tragedy.

The Denehy left Norfolk at 10 o'clock yesterday morning for the fishing grounds off the Virginia capes and Muise was reported to be in his bunk.  At 1 o'clock, one of the crew went below to call him to go on watch and found him missing.

The trawler turned back and spent an hour in searching the waters of Hampton roads but found no trace of the missing man.

Muise, who was second engineer, had been a member of the crew of the Denehy since last June.  He was formerly with Capt. Carl Olson and left to take a site on the Denehy, fishing out of Boston until late last fall, when the vessel went south to fish out of Norfolk.

He was a native of Nova Scotia but had spent most of his life fishing out of this port and Boston.  He leaves a widow, Mrs. Mary A. Muise, and a large family of children.
