Friday, May 22, 2009
Hello, The request for information on the captain of the blockade runner ss modern greece, i believe the last captain was captain james parker who died in richmond virginia on the 23rd of september 1862. His grave is in the spring bank west cemetery in Hull. How he died i don't know, probably from injuries received when the yankee ships sank it.
You may well be aware of this article: British Blockade-Running Ship 'Modern Greece' by Ian Crook..
But I am unable to find details of her Captain.
