Where can I find a list of the 13 member crew that was aboard the Steam Barge "R. G. Peters" that caught fire and went down in heavy seas about 35 miles off the coast of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in early December, 1882?
The articles I found give the captain's name as Charles Smith. All but one of crew called Manistee, Michigan home.
The article states the second engineer was a man named FINAN, but does not give his given name. I am sure this man is an ancestor of my husband and I would like to know his full name.
