Description
The JOHN B. COLLEY (bark) logbook (SAFR 13573, HDC 27) is comprised of a single volume sea journal written by an unidentified author during a voyage from Norfolk, Virginia to San Francisco, California on the JOHN B. COLLEY (bark) in 1849. This collection has been processed to the collection level and is open for use without restrictions.
Background
The JOHN B. COLLEY was a bark built in 1847 in Norfolk, Virginia. The collection material covers a voyage from Norfolk on March 8, 1849. She arrived San Francisco on December 10, 1849, carrying 29 passengers and 12 crew, under command of Captain William Smith. The voyage was apparently quite miserable for passengers. Other records show the bark calling in New York in 1852,; and later it arrived at Astoria, Washington on March 7, 1854, from New York. Final disposition of the vessel is unknown.
