Susan.. Since I came into this thread late; Have you heard from Alex Ritchie.
If anyone can help you with a Shipmaster it's Alex. A search of previous
threads from him has:
One of Peterhead’s most successful whaling captains. He owned and died
in command of the “Industry” on her maiden voyage to the Baltic with a
cargo of herring. His son George was a crew member on this voyage. He
was buried at Stettin.
Born : c1790

This is wonderful! Thank you so much for your help! I wish that Scotland was as
open with their records as England is. It would sure make life easier!!!
I have not found a source online for a full OPR FREE listing for Aberdeenshire -
do you know of one?
