A relative allegedly died at sea at Sulawesi Tengah, Indonesia on 19 May 1875. His name was William Robert Samuel Jones, aged 44.
I don't know if he was in the Royal Navy, merchant mariner or what. I have had no luck in finding any information about shipwrecks/sinkings in Indonesia at that time.
Can anyone provide any hints, tips or suggestions on how I might find out more information (websites, books, etc. etc.)
