Last Saturday saw the 37th anniversary of sinking of the 729 foot ore carrier the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald. My
great-great-great-great-great uncle was an oiler in her engine room, and he was going to retire after that voyage. Sadly, he never made it home to his family. In addition, my US History & Government teacher's uncle was a crewmember of the Arthur M. Anderson, the ship that had the last radio contact with the Fitz. My teacher also spent several summers working on the Burlington Northern ore dock in Superior, Wisconsin, loading ore boats. Several times he loaded the Anderson.

Yep. I'm also related to Alexander Graham Bell. (My mother's maiden name is Bell, so she is distantly related)

Just found out that I am distantly related to John Luther Jones!

( I don't remember posting this! I know that I didn't, because I am not related in any way to Casey Jones)
