Re: SS Edward Pierce and Merchant Mariner Ellef Andersen
Thank you for this information on the ship! I have contacted the Coast Guard National Maritime Center about Ellef, which is where I got the date of his discharge. They said that his full records are at the National Archive and I have not had good luck getting more than his discharge information. They tell me to contact the Coast Guard in West Virginia, who then tell me to check with the National Archives.... I have given up for now with that endless circle. That is why I thought I would pursue the ship! This is good information, thank you so much.
Amazing that there was this article at the same time as his injury. Again, thank you so much for finding it!
