||The Schooner Emma Harvey (8)|
On July 5, 1916, the schooner Emma Harvey was lost in a storm off the Mississippi coast. Its crew were never found. Among those lost were George Duggan, his son, Arthur Duggan, and his wife's nephew, Lawrence Bennett.
In July 1971, Lottie Duggan Foretich visited the site at Dauphin Island, Alabama, where the schooner Emma Harvey was located 55 years after it was lost in the storm of July 5, 1916. Her father, George Duggan, and her brother Arthur were never found and are presumed to have died in the storm. She recalled her brother Arthur carving his initials into the wood and located the spot where his initials remained.
