Comorin arriving at the Port of New York, 4 Apr 1888

This Page last updated on .

The manifest for the 4 Apr 1888 arrival shows the Comorin sailed from Naples, Italy. I originally found these manifests on but now you should be able to find them at the site (for free).

I tried to find each of these people in the SPA birth records. I'm still looking.

Col*n*  *** (can't read first name, barely read the beginning of the surname) on line 1265 9y sheet 26, can't read sheet 26, can't read           Might be Maria Grazia Colaianni, the daughter of Liberata Gatti and Domenico Colaianni. The line on the manifest is smudged very badly and very hard to read.

Built by Forges & Chantiers de la Mediterranee, La Seyne, she was launched for Cie.Nationale de Navigation, Marseilles on 16th Sep.1882. Her first and only round voyage between Marseilles - Naples - New York started on 10th Mar.1888 and on 6th Apr.1888 she was run into off Battery Point, NY while at anchor in quarantine by the US schoooner HATTIE PAGE, which was seriously damaged. Transferred to other services after this voyage, she was destroyed by fire at Marseilles on 1th Sep.1895, scuttled and later salvaged and scrapped. [North Atlantic Seaway, vol.3,p.1171 by N.R.P.Bonsor] This book contains a photo of a near sister ship of these two vessels - CANTON. The company ceased passenger services to New York in 1896, but continued cargo work and services to the Far East. They went into liquidation in 1904.
