USS Somerfield (1861)
Destined for the "stone fleet"
On 11 October, she was one of five schooners there in "pretty good condition." Four of these vessels – not identified – were being used as ships for the "stone fleet" of sunken obstructions in harbors and other waterways of the Confederate States of America. On 14 November 1861, three of these schooners – again unidentified – were sunk in the channel of Ocracoke Inlet, and she may have been one of them.
