> Is there anywhere to find a list of ships from the port of NY for 1812? Are there newspapers that list ships leaving or arriving in the port of NY in 1812? I am trying to find a Merchant ship Jane whose Capt was Andrew Murdock. He died at sea in 1812. He left an estate that was probated in England but he lived in New York City with wife Elizabeth Arcularius(maiden name) Shonnard (first husband).
I am finishing an article on the Arcularius family to be published shortly in the New York Genealogical society's journal.I can find NO documentation anywhere for Elizabeth's second marriage to Andrew Murdock.There is an internet entry that they were married in NYC on 7 Feb 1799, but I can find no good source to prove this.The NYGB Society will not accept any "fact" without documentation.
