Thanks for the quick response.
I know my EMAIL address threw you a little bit, but my grandfather came from Hannibal, Missouri and I am I migrant to the Australian shores from 20+ years ago.
I only recently found out about the SACAJAWEA connection (and the merchant marine aspect) and I have not found out a lot about the ship. The information I got from my dad was sketchy at best before he passed away last year.
If you think of anything else that might assist in my search, please let me know.
