The Wreck of the OLIVE THURLOW, December 5, 1902

Record #:
The barkentine OLIVE THURLOW was passing Cape Lookout on route to New York when its captain, Jerry Hayes, broke his leg. Seeking medical attention from the nearby lifesaving station, the lighthouse keeper warned the THURLOW’s crew that a storm was approaching. While the Captain was taken to Beaufort for medical attention, the ship and crew were grounded on the beach. This account details their rescue and the demise of OLIVE THURLOW, including the later discovery of archaeological remains.
