I'm sorry, I do not see the name in the Index.

There is a listing for a ship called the Betsey that was lost on Dec. 11,
1800 when it foundered off the Virginia Capes.

May I ask for a look-up for a Samuel Fisher, Quaker, merchant sea captain,
who was said to have gone done in a shipwreck off coast of Virginia or
Maryland circa 1800. The date could be earlier or later than the date I give.

The journal of my ggg-grandfather mentions this, so in the re-telling the
actual truth may be somewhat different.

Thanks for any help.
