Re: Communication with SS Esso Bayonne, 1929 - 1940
What a coincidence! I was googling my name just now and came across this discussion. Patrick Breen was my great-grandfather and I'm actually his namesake (Benjamin Patrick Breen). Ron Carlson's sleuthing was correct; my grand father and dad are both named John Joseph Breen, and we actually still have some letters that Patrick Breen sent my dad from the same tanker. I'd be thrilled to be able to add to the collection with the one's Jo mentions. I wrote her an email but am posting here as well to be on the safe side, since I'd really love to have a chance to see this bit of family history! I'm a professional historian, which makes it all the more interesting to me.
