Hi everyone and thank you for all the great comments on the recent photos.  I’m working on getting them labeled, but feel free to comment if you identify anyone in the photos.

A few years back, Lisa Knott (who’s grandfather Dalton Kirkman father, Joe Feeney served aboard the Partridge) sent me this scanned account of the Partridge sinking.  It’s a very personal account that’s worth the read.  I never met Jim, but my father and mother remember meeting him at a reunion.  He said of the ship sinking: “It was like your whole world disappeared under the water.”

I’ll be posting more, including chapters from my book soon.

Enjoy!  (Click on the image to view)
