I just got an event page- 7/12/1913 - after a weather page - but even if someone is doing the events pages quickly; they are still doing the weather pages, possibly just skipping them - I still don't quite see how speed of processing leads to someone only getting weather pages. If I'm not getting event pages, that means those pages have been viewed and passed through 3 times, with their corresponding weather pages being viewed and passed through 2 times...Tis a puzzlement...

So someone is doing just events and skipping the weather pages? I didn't think the programming allowed such a thing - I thought the pages were always in pairs. In any event, without the event pages, my weather pages have no date information....

I have been working on Albatross and am only getting weather pages - is there a reason for this?

Hey - does Old Weather Whaling have the Kensington out of New Bedford? I ask because Joachim Pease was a crewman on her before enlisting in the US Navy.  I still want to try to identify the men in the photo correctly, and I stumbled on this fact in the process. Old Weather Whaling is currently down -

I thought I read at the beginning of this thread that there were African-American officers on the Kearsarge - my lesson learned is to re-read something.  The hunt has been enjoyable though, and I did find a Franklin Graham, in the Navy who was described as having a dark complexion.

Addendum: Well, I found the marriage certificate for the son of Franklin A. Graham, George B. Graham, and he is listed as white.

I'm not sure that Franklin A. Graham is who seem to think he is - Graham also served on the Frolic (per wife's application for pension after his death) and I can't find anything that mentions African-American officers on the Frolic...

Lordy, yes - you ask a question like that, and I can't help it - I have to find out! It is a form of insanity...:)

UPDATE

ok, the neighborhood in Brooklyn where Franklin A. Graham lived was predominately African-American at the time he lived there.  I have some lines of inquiry out to the Historical Society of the county where he was buried, and also the Brooklyn Navy Yard's historical archives.  Next stop: the naval personnel archives in St. Louis, and the Navy's historical command...

Hi all - Did some checking and then this slipped my mind - after consultation with my New York born (Brooklyn Heights, if I remember correctly), New York loving husband, and some books we have, I was not able to determine of that part was an African-American neighborhood.  According to hubby, the neighborhoods of New York were not so starkly drawn at that time.  Also, being a middle class neighborhood would not mean it was not also African-American.  I'm going to contact the Brooklyn Historical Society for help - oh, they may have materials on people too....

yep - still no indication if he was African-American, and thus the man in the picture...

Just a note: Franklin A. Graham, U.S.N. was living at 171 Duffield St., Brooklyn NY, in 1867. I'm trying to determine if that area was an African-American neighborhood at that time. He could have been stationed at the Navy Yard in Brooklyn after the war.

NOTE: I found more info:  his widow was Elizabeth L. Graham and he died 4 Sept 1873 (born 1830) buried in Springfield, Delaware County, PA

SPOILER ALERT IF YOU WATCH ELEMENTARY -
Hi all -

Just wanted to pop in and tell you about a new use for a log book's weather data I just heard about - On Elementary, Sherlock Holmes compares the weather data from various ships' logs to prove that a suspect log is indeed fake - what a great use! :)
