Question:  In the 1809 Connecticut probate inventory of my ancestor it mentions he owned a share of a sloop called the "ABBY ANN".  How can I find out more about this vessel?


Answer:  The Mystic Seaport Museum maintains a database called the "Connecticut Ship Database, 1789-1939".  A search of this databse revealed that the ABBY ANN was in operation in Connecticut waters between 1807-1810.  You can do a search for the ABBY ANN and other vessels online at:
