-------------------------

Author J.A. Gibbs, in "Shipwrecks off Juan De Fuca"(Binfords and Mort, Portland,1968):
Nellie May (bark):
This American bark, 699 tons, foundered off Cape Flattery in January 1890. The vessel departed from Port Townsend with lumber for San Francisco and vanished with all hands, probably the victim of heavy seas. Her name board was picked up on May 4, off Cape Flattery, by the tug Lorne, and the wreckage of one of her boats was found by Indians at Clayoquot, B. C. The vessel was owned by Captain Artell Austin; her skipper, W. P. Sayward of Port Madison, and E. M. Harrick of San Francisco. She was built at Newcastle, Maine, in 1867 and carried a crew of 13, including the captain.
