    2. David E. Cann
    3. Hello folks, and welcome back to RootsWeb's newly upgraded list system. If you are receiving this post it is because you are still a subscriber to this list, even though things have been pretty quiet due to a number of issues lately. The lists are back now, and I believe you will like the improvements that have been made. The most obvious improvement is a new RootsWeb login system, which you will find at the following link: http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/setupmail Only one account per person is needed, and once you have created it you will be able to organize and manage all of your list subscriptions in one handy location. Like anything new there will be something of a learning curve in the beginning, but I really think you will like it for the new security and personalization features for your list subscriptions. And last but not least, please note my email address as List Owner immediately below this message and following my name. Also note the "List information" link below that, which will take you to the information page for this list, where you will find information to help you subscribe, unsubscribe, and some other things based on the current status of your new log in account. I welcome you back to the list, and look forward to working with you in the future tracking down our elusive ancestors. David E.

    1. [NE Seafarers] Mary Douglass
    2. Connie Robinson via
    3. Looking for birth certificate of MARY DOUGLASS . She was born in SUWANEE, FLORIDA March 1830. She and her bother WILLIAM DOUGLASS survived the Seminole Indian Wars. Both of their parents were killed. She was taken by Capt Steven Morgan to Ledyard, CT at the age of 5. She lived with the Morgans, grew up and later married Nelson Lamb. Mary died in 1914. WILLIAM went to New Orleans with a family named GOLDSMITH. WILLIAM moved to California in 1850. MARY DOUGLASS LAMB was my great great grandmother. Would love to know who her parents were. Following are some letters from William Douglass to his sister, found in the Mystic Seaport Library. http://library.mysticseaport.org/initiative/PageImage.cfm… <http://library.mysticseaport.org/initiative/PageImage.cfm?BibID=30547> C.Robinson

    1. [NE Seafarers] Capt Samuel Rhodes 1701-1756
    2. jrhodes via
    3. Would be grateful if anyone every sees anything on the death of Capt. Samuel Rhodes to send a shot. I believe he might have died in the Oswego area of NY during the French and Indian War. I believe , he was at the siege of Louisburg, and ended up on land in charge of cannons and was called up per ad in the London Gentlemans magazine in the fall of 1754 to be part of William Pepperill's 51 regiment of foot. I have never seen a reference to his death and he was an officer... Thank you

    1. [NE Seafarers] FROM THE ADMIN: Digest subscribers please note
    2. David E. Cann
    3. Please DO NOT reply to this on the list I'm the Admin of this list, and I would like to ask for your help if I may. This pertains to digest subscribers ONLY, so folks subscribed in list mode please completely disregard it. The current default format on this list for digest posts is called "MIME," which means you will receive each digest as a single post usually once a day with each individual post for that day appearing as an attachment. This is the one exception to what you may have heard about no attachments on RW lists, but these are quite safe to open. To read or reply to one of the attached posts, you simply double-click it to open it, after which you can reply to it if you choose to. Generally, replying to it will require little or no editing or trimming as was needed with previous digests here. I have recently become aware that reportedly A FEW service providers do not receive this type of digests very well, although the large majority of them do. If you are not able to double-click on an attachment and read it properly, then it is possible that your service provider may be one of the very few unable to receive and deliver them correctly. If so, please drop me a line OFF LIST AT MY ADMIN ADDRESS BELOW, and I will return your subscription to what is called "plain text" format as before. Likewise, if you are able to use these digests without difficulty but simply prefer the plain text format used before, then drop me a line OFF LIST using the same address below and ask me to return your digest to "plain text" format. As another option you may want to try list mode, and receive your list posts immediately as they come in rather than wait for your digest up to 24 hours later. If you are having no difficulty reading or using the current digests this way, then there is no need to reply or let me know. I try very hard to reply to all correspondence from subscribers, but sometimes replying to everyone is simply not always feasible. David E.

    1. [NE Seafarers] Nellie M. Slade
    2. I am looking for information on the Nellie M. Slade, built in East Boston, including good photographs of her or photographs of paintings made of her, and information on people associated with her. She was named after my great grandmother, Ellen M. Slade, and ownership includes Ellen's father-in-law William Jennings Slade and several other members of the Slade family. She sunk in the Dry Tortugas and had several other brushes with near disaster, such as being struck by a waterspout off Bermuda and getting damaged in the Portland Gale off Martha's Vineyard. Records I can find on-line show she was a fairly fast boat for a barkentine and regularly visited Australia and New Zealand. Family stories indicate she also visited China. At least two artists painted the Nellie M. Slade. I am certain that William Stubbs painted her and his painting sold in recent years at a gallery in Boston. Its asking price was beyond my reach. I had hoped to be able to get a photo of the painting but the gallery did not provide such. Another painting by an unknown artist was at one time owned by my grandfather but was lost. I do own an actual photo of the Nellie M. Slade at the dock in East Boston, but with the sails down, it is no where near as dramatic as the painting. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    1. [NE Seafarers] "Junius Brutus" in the American Revolution
    2. Dorothy V. Malcolm
    3. Hi all, Does anyone have information on the Junius Brutus out of Salem, MA during the Am. Revolution? I know at one point with was used by privateers and even a few of the men on board who claimed a "booty." But I don't know who the owner/captain of that vessel was, OR which British boats/ships they seized, and whatever became of the Junius Brutus. Wonder if it was captured by the British or if it capsized following a skirmish at sea. So many questions! But I'm curious as my original forebear (Edward Dalton) was a privateer on it and I'd love to learn more about that vessel. Any and all information is greatly appreciated! Dorothy

I know at one point with was used by privateers and even a few of the men on board who claimed a "booty." But I don't know who the owner/captain of that vessel was, OR which British boats/ships they seized, and whatever became of the Junius Brutus. Wonder if it was captured by the British or if it capsized following a skirmish at sea. So many questions! But I'm curious as my original forebear (Edward Dalton) was a privateer on it and I'd love to learn more about that vessel. > > > Any and all information is greatly appreciated! > > > Dorothy > ------------------------------- >
