Hagley Museum Digital Images (Pusey, Jones & Co.)

Governor Safford image

Apparently, the machinery was what was built by Pusey & Jones, and the wooden superstructure in NJ.

Foundered off Bogue Inlet, NC on July 24, 1908. Coming from Georgetown, SC to NY.

This was just a couple of miles from the family farm where I grew up near Swansboro, NC, but I never heard of the Governor Safford by name.


I think the South Carolina Maritime Museum in Georgetown, SC has a model of the Governor Safford, and images of it’s time in Winyah Bay.
