Looking for info on the wreck and crew members of a ship out of South Shields called the 'Auspicious,' abt 1863. Ephraim Meech was on board - family has him as a captain but most likely a mate. A verse from the time - 'The Auspicious is lost, her mariners sleep/ as we fear in the arms of the perilous deep. The storm-beaten billows, that ceaslessly roll/ shall keep them forever from mortal control' Thank you.
