All but two of the crew were drowned.Capt.John Innes the master, aged 42 was buried in his father's lair in Newburgh Churchyard - a relation of Elizabeth? Two harpooners, George Buchan aged 29 and Alex.Buchan aged 25 both of Peterhead also drowned - Relations of George Buchan and Elizabeth?Hope this is of some interest.Also note Ythan was busy little commercial river in 1800's.Regards, Malcolm Simpson.
