Ship Russell Glover - Liverpool to New York - 1843

Ship Russell Glover - Liverpool to New York - 1843

Hello All

I've recently discovered that my family sailed on the Russell Glover when they came to America. I am now curious about this vessel. As I see so many times on ancestry someone knows the answer I thought I would throw out the question if anyone knows where I can find an image of the Russell Glover?

Thanks so much
Jamie

Hi Jamie,

If you do a general Google search for "Ship Russell Glover", you will find articles in several books from the 1840s and 1850s. One "hit" was an from the Smithsonian Inventories Catalog for a painting of "The Packet Ship Russell Glover" from about 1860. Unfortunately, there is no image shown and I'm not certain this is the passenger ship you are looking for:

The ship was made in the one of the ship building coastal cities of Great Britain and transported people and cargo to America and back. I understand the Russell Glover wrecked off Munjack, a small island in the Abbaccos off Florida in 1852 or 53. Must have been a subsequent trip to the new nation or on the way back to England.
