Provincetown's tragic losses
By Mary Ann Bragg

...
In February 1978, Capt. Ralph Andrews, 56, and three crew members, all from Provincetown, died when the dragger Cap'n Bill sank 2.8 miles off Highland Light in North Truro. The crew members were Edward Hoernig, 21; Ernie Tasha, 22; and Robert Sullivan, 30. The 63-foot dragger was reported missing Feb. 12 after failing to return after four days at sea. The sunken vessel was found Feb. 19 when the Provincetown dragger Jimmy Boy snagged the Cap'n Bill wreck in 137 feet of water. Divers sent down to the wreck the next day found no bodies. No trace of the crew was found until February 1980, when a femur netted by the dragger Triumph out of Provincetown proved to belong to Andrews.

Notes
General:
"Here reposes the remains of Anthony Holbrook who died in the city of New Orleans Jan. 17, 18848, aged 51 yrs." 17
Marriage Notes (Hannah R Smith)
Naming children Rozetta/Rosetta and Wellington implies an interest in the Napoleonic wars, and 'Anthony' itself implies a classical interest by his parents, contrasting with the standard Biblical and repeated local names.

Rosetta, Hannah, Sally and Wellington are buried together, with the verse "Suffer little children to come unto me & forbid them not."
