Ocracoke's history & its people

Historical news: mystery ship solved

In August we reprinted an article from the Green­ville News, Aug. 3, 1921 about a mystery ship seen off of Ocracoke.  See Here.   We asked if anyone had any information or theories about the identity to this ship to contact us.  

Philip Howard discussed this in one of his recent blog posts on Ocracoke Island Journal here .   Kevin Duffus. whom the  North Carolina Society of Historians named as the top historian of the year for 2014, shared his opinion with the Observer here

We came across closure on this and Kevin Duffus was correct.  The following was published in the December issue of the Ocracoke Observer.
