The Ingomar


October 24, 1927

Local Man Lost From Ingomar
Caleb Conrad Drowned Saturday Afternoon
While Craft Was Proceeding Out of Boston Harbor for Banks

The fishing schooner Ingomar, Capt. Mason, while on the way out of Boston Harbor to the fishing grounds Saturday afternoon, lost a member of the crew, Caleb Conrad, who lives in this city.  He fell overboard and was drowned, in spite of efforts of the crew to save him.

Capt. Mason, who returned to Boston to report the drowning to the police, said that, when a boat was lowered, the body of Conrad had disappeared.  The schooner remained in the vicinity for some time, and then put back to the Fish Pier and reported the accident.
