My 3x great grandfather, John Joseph Casey sailed for whales with Capt. Libeus King, 1861 - 1863, from the South Atlantic grounds, clearing from Long Island in the 134-ton schooner Susan. Edwin Field was the ship's steward.
Searching for info on the ship. Suggestions?
Planning to visit the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum next fall but they are now closed until May 2020.
Thank you in advance for any info or search tips you may have!
