Frank Ward

Erickson has Captain Frank Ward dying in 1874 in the wreck of his barque, the Caroline Hutchings, 'off the coast of China'. However, he and his wife both survived, as she lived to write an account of the event - which I've put on the page for the ship.

Ward married Mary Jane Harwood, the second daughter of builder J. J. Harwood.
