Hi Regina,

Also built at Port Milford were the schooner scows Jessie Brown and Jennie Lind, both by master shipbuilder John Tait; Cooper's Wharf saw the building of the County's first 3 masted Schooner, the Huron (1874), with a capacity of 18,000 bushels, by the McMurchy brothers, and the second 3 master, the W.R. Taylor (see illustration) with a capacity of 20,000 bushels and valued in 1875 at $22,000.00; and the Speedwell in Marysburgh, 1875, also by George Dixon. In 1880 a steamer named Silver Spray was built by Capt. John Eagan at Cooper's landing. (W. Metcalfe: "John Parkinson began to build the Silver Spray at Point Traverse but before it was completed, the hull was placed on a scow and taken to Milford where it was sold to a Mr Otter and John Asa Werden who finished construction on the head farm adjacent to the Village . . . she was launched in Black River . . . made one trip to Kingston, but she was too small and unsafe to cross 'The Gap' . . . she lay rotting in Picton Harbour until finally she burned to the water's edge.")

Regina, if you do a Google search, i.e., Ship Silver Spray, I think you will find some good history.

Hi thanks for your information. I had 2 relatives that died on one of the ships in fact they were brothers. The name of the ship was the Mertis H Perry. Any information that you might have pertaining to this ship would be much appreciated.
