Running the Union blockade of Wilmington during the Civil War was a risk. On September 26, 1864, Marie DeRosset and daughter Gabrielle set sail aboard the Lynx, seeking to reach Marie's malaria-stricken husband in Nassau. Union ships attacked the LYNX, severely damaging the vessel. Mother and daughter barely escaped. Gabrielle DeRosset lived the rest of her life in Wilmington, becoming known as a musician and historian. She died in 1936.
