Thanks for the reply.

The now vanished community on Metompkin Island sounds like what I'd be looking for given I was looking at an 1860 census and where most of the heads of household for the community were sailors.

I'm hours away so anything in a local library down there would do me no good. Would you know off hand of any histories for the now vanished settlement that might be available on the web?

Ditto cemeteries & churches cemeteries that might have been on the island or that the islanders would have used on the penninsula?

Thanks again.
