I have also been looking for information on whaling captains, PORTS, and ships sailing to and from ALASKA in the 1800's?I was just wondering if you have had any luck on the subject since you posted your message?
I am looking for any mention of Captains William Henry Kelley, Edmund Kelley or John Armstrong.
The Kelley brothers were originally out of New Bedford, then out of San Francisco. Captain Armstrong was believed to be out of Alaska somewhere (He was nephew to the Kelley brothers).
Please answer on this forum, if possible, so as to share with others. If you have to e-mail me, please type ....'Whaling History, Alaska' ..... in the Subject line.
