I, for one, absolutely appreciate all the work done by the Boston Sea Rovers, and others who strove to preserve the history of Lightship #117. Captain George Braithwaite of the Lightship was my great-Uncle - the brother of my g-Grandmother! I have only just 'discovered' him whilst researching family history through Ancestry.com. He was born in Ulverston, Lancashire, England in 1866, and immigrated to the United States in 1905 via Canada where he met and married his wife, Elizabeth, and where their children were born. He became a US Citizen in 1916, and was listed as 'Master Mariner' for his occupation in the US Federal Censuses for subsequent years.
I was totally amazed to find this information about the dreadful accident with the Olympic in connection with my g-Uncle George! and now I'm 'running with it' too, and that's why I appreciate those who are attempting to create a very apt memorial to those who perished in the disaster. The artifacts retrieved from the wreck are not 'grave-site robberies' - on the contrary, if preserved in the proper setting, they are a Memorial to bring to future generations the awareness of Maritime History.
I live in Oregon, but I am hoping, one day, to visit the Museum where the Lightship #117 Artifacts are on display.
Again, thank you for your excellent article, and I wish you every success in your future research endeavors.

Sincerely,
Jan Marshall
Coos Bay, Oregon.
