US Navy Ensign Charles E. Sweeting who lost his life from effects of sunstroke in Honolulu.
Oh how sad. I do not think sunstroke was his problem on the voyage towards the arctic. It does not sound as if he were a prime physical specimen with at least two major health events within a year at around age 30. He had only been on Thetis for three months when he was detached.
Fannie C. Paddock Memorial Hospital was dedicated on April 29, 1882, at 2511 N. Starr St. in Tacoma, Washington Territory. The hospital was established by Bishop John A. Paddock in honor of his wife, Fannie, who had died exactly one year earlier while the family made the trip from New York to provide health care in the West.

I have made a correction to the 1901 listing, with B Arukic becoming Bert Arnkil. He was lost overboard in March 1902 during a storm whilst en route to Honolulu - newspaper report. RIP.
