Research in progress[edit]

We have let this set for four years while we gathered more material. Our blog post (The Gardiner that was) can be used for a bit to organize the necessary material (we will get this into place this week). The quoted article at the Douglas County site does not show its sources. I am talking shipping reports, newspapers, et al. A report by the captain of the Kate Heath which came upon the wreck has a Capt Boyling as in command of the Bostonian. Snelling is mentioned as a passenger of the Kate Heath as it returned to S.F. in Dec of 1850. Much to discuss. So, I am nestling the prior sections under this one. This is not original research, rather an attempt at clarifying the situation. jmswtlk (talk) 22:47, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Merchant[edit]

It is hard to fathom that Mr. Gardiner was never identified in all of these writings until 1994 (see the work to document as needed for the historic places tag). Today, we find out about Silvester Henry Dearborn Gardiner, born in Pittston, ME in 1814. Auspices of the Thomas Gardner Society, Inc. jmswtlk (talk) 01:57, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

The May 2015 issue (Vol. 35, No. 2) of The Essex Genealogist (published by Essex Society of Genealogists) has an article (Page 31) that provides details about Henry D. Gardiner and the barque Bostonian. A timeline for the barque up to the time of the shipwreck can be found in the article; too, there is genealogical information about Henry. The article will appear, on-line, soon in The Gardner Annals. jmswtlk (talk) 19:07, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Bostonian[edit]

We are piecing together a history of the barque. There is a lithograph which we'll try to get. Also, the San Francisco newspaper reported that the Bostonian (owned by H. D. Gardiner) was at the wharf selling its goods in August 1850 which it had picked up in Boston in May 1849. Then, we see a New Zealand paper saying that it had heard that the Bostonian had come over from S.F. and was in the northern part picking up timber in April 1850. Evidently, the trip over took only 45 days. But, with loading and the return trip, we see the shipwreck in October 1850. Exhausted crew? jmswtlk (talk) 02:48, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Gardiner[edit]

H.D. and his brother, C.F., were ship builders, among other things. Example: USS William G. Anderson (1859). For information about Henry Dearborn Gardiner, watch this blog post at Thomas Gardner of Salem blog. jmswtlk (talk) 23:08, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
