Provincetown's tragic losses

...
On May 3, 1984, the dragger Victory II was found sunken in 30 feet of water off Billingsgate Shoal, when a Wellfleet fishing vessel snagged its nets on the submerged 56-foot boat. It had last been seen May 1, 1984.

The three crew members, all of Provincetown, who died in the incident were Capt. Kenneth Macara II, 28; Ben Fernandez, 33; and John "J.D." Dorff, believed to be 36. The boat's nets, which were being dragged along the side, became entangled in a chain attached to an abandoned concrete sinker on the ocean floor, according to the 1985 Coast Guard report. The crew was hauling in the nets and had pulled up the chain to within about 10 feet of the boat, the report said, but what happened next is unclear, although it is believed the boat rolled on its side and sank. The partial skeletal remains of Macara were caught in the net of a dragger near Billingsgate Shoal in 1985.

parents Angus & Sarah, from marriage record

Neil MacMillan was captain of the fishing schooner Nellie Swift out of Provincetown. In Nov 1883 he was captain of the schooner Abbie Brown, which was sent to Bay of Islands, Newfoundland for a cargo of frozen herring. The ship and crew vanished en route.

Barnstable Patriot, 29 Jan 1884
"Schooner Abbie H. Brown of Provincetown from Boston for Bay of Islands, N.F., to load herring, is long overdue, and great apprehension is felt for her safety. The Brown left Boston Nov. 10, the day before the heavy gale in which so many Gloucester fishermen were lost. She had a crew of six men. Capt. Neil McMillin and Mate Kenneth McPhee have families at Provincetown," 12
