  • Notes 
    • Her parents are Jonah and Rachel.

      Jonah is a ship carpenter....

      In the book "When Ships were Ships," sea-captain William Morris Barnes, born in St. John's in 1850, tells of the building of a vessel for his family firm of supplying merchants and ship owners, and of her first foreign voyage. He writes, "?.this beautiful bark, the Fleetwing?.she was the fastest thing ever sailed salt water. She was built down in a place called Green Bay, built by a man called Newhook; he was a smart carpenter?."

      Of her first voyage, Barnes writes, "She started out for Brazil and she made a very quick run down, thirty-two days to Pernambuco from St. John's?..the captain said that he saw nothing on the whole trip that he didn't come up with and pass, and nothing every came up and passed him."
