Capt P. Eilertsen / Norwegian Brig Vultur / Dec 12, 79
What is known:
a) Photo has the photographer’s name (A. Courreges) and city (Libourne) [France] on the back and front. Libourne is about 10 miles from Bordeaux, France.
b) On October 17, 1879 The Daily News (Wilmington, NC) reported that the ship ‘Nor Brig Vultu’ was cleared to sail to Wilmington on September 16, 1879, from Bordeaux.
c) On December 19, 1879 The Weekly Star (Wilmington, NC) reported that the ship ‘Nor Brig Vultur’ was cleared to sail for Hamburg with 834 bales of cotton. [Captain] Eilertsen. Williams and Murchison [agents].
d) Photo is inscribed on the back “Capt P. Eilertsen / Norwegian Brig Vultur / Dec 12, 79”
e) This photo is in the family collection held by John Butler of Wilmington. Families surname Robbins were among John’s ancestors in Wilmington, NC, in the 1870’s. The Robbins were ships’ chandlers.
f) There is no known connection of Capt Eilertson with John Butler’s family.
It is suspected that Captain Eilertsen was a casual business acquaintance of the Robbins and that this photo served as a business card. It would be much more interesting to discover that there was some sort of romantic liaison involved!
John would appreciate hearing from anyone with knowledge of Capt. Eilertsen. Would be happy to supply a good scan of the photo to anyone interested. Contact through the ONHGS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Would the pin tell anything about
Native American heredity?
