Chris Olsen made an interesting point in an e-mail this week. He had just read my article entitled “I don’t like mysteries” that conjectures about the names of the original eight members of the CSS Curlew crew. He pointed out that three of the names on my list had connections with the Curlew prior to the war. After doing some more checking, I found three of the other names had Albemarle area connections as well. Two more to go.
