G'day from West Australia. A few years ago i located a rock carving relating to the Whaleship Delta out of Greenport. It read's "J Leek, Ship Delta . July 12 1849." I started a project of research about the ship and the industry that eventually lapsed due to other commitments and a bit of laziness but im now keen to pick up where i left off. I located the log for the voyage when the carving was left and confirmed details and the local West Aust museum also did some stuff and recently released a paper (link below) as part of another project. I work as an offshore vessel Master and on a project for Chevron so ironic that i am also helping to deliver oil and gas for the US. Where i'm drawing a small blank just now is any link to Mr Leeks decendents and recently i was given a Fakeshaw that shows the Delta. The fakeshaw lists a captain that doesnt match my records and keen to see if there is an original. Any advice or suggestions on research ideas on the Delta is greatly appreciated. The internet is only so deep and i'm sure im missing a lot. Cheers Lance
My great-grandfather, Dr. Treadwell Lewis Ireland, was a physician in Greenport at the end of the 19th century. I will be visiting Long Island and would very much like to arrange to see the Ireland House and meet with a Greenport historian to learn more. I'd also like to find out whether I'm related to the late Margaret E. Ireland, who was born in Brooklyn. My great-grandfather lived in Brooklyn in his later years. I sent a message with my contact information via the blue "Send Message button" on this page.
This Booklet was published in October 1987. Lots of great information and pictures.
May 23, 1962 This is who the Stirling Historical Society Museum, Ireland House, is named after.
HI Folks, I did send many of you an invite to like the Stirling Historical Society page. I have been volunteering as a docent at the Ireland House the Societies Museum in Greenport, it has been lots of fun and very interesting meeting lots of people also interested in Greenports History. So Thanks for responding.
