I failed to find 'Conference' crew lists at TNA.
I'm not certain that 'Conference' was his last ship, because he obtained his Master's Cert. in 1871 and would probably have taken a Captains job on a new ship.
I have ordered a book the 'Diary of Fanny Colwill Calvert' and she may well refer to the demise of William before she emigrated to Ontario. I will post any information obtained on the Board.
