Mrs. Susan Sewall Secures Liberation From Her Husband.

Dissolute Habits of Arthur Sewall's Nephew Cause Him to Lose His Ship and His Wife.

BOSTON, Jan. 3 — The January session of the divorce court, Judge Blodgett, began this morning. There were forty-three cases on the uncontested docket. Several divorces were granted for desertion. Among these was that of Mrs. Susan Sewall against E. R. Sewall. Mr. Sewall is the nephew of Arthur Sewall, the famous shipbuilder of Bath, Me., and late candidate for Vice-President of the United States.

Mrs. Sewall, whose maiden name was Baker, was married in San Francisco in 1856. Sewall was a shipmaster, and his wife accompanied him for four years on his voyages in different parts of the world. Mrs. Sewall testified that her husband's habits of drinking lost him command of his vessel in 1892. In that year Mrs. Sewall visited her parents in Harwich in this State, and afterward she went with her husband to his home in Bath. They returned to Harwich and soon after Mr. Sewall went away professedly on business. Since that time his wife has seen him but once, and that was at the Adams House in this city in October, 1892. She heard of him in New Jersey and in San Francisco, where he had associations with other women. During this time Mrs. Sewall has lived at 212 Columbus avenue in this city and has supported herself by dressmaking. San Francisco Call, 4 January 1898.5

On 9 April 1898 it was reported in the New York Times that "Edward R. Sewall, an officer on the steamship El Sud of the Morgan Line, was yesterday arrested on an order signed by Justice Pryor in the Supreme Court. He was afterwards released on bail. He was charged with having alienated the affections of Clara Gertrude, wife of Theodore W. Crowley, who sued him for $50,000 damages.
The Crowleys were married in 1894, and Crowley, who was an officer on the Morgan Line steamers, said that soon after the marriage his wife's conduct toward him became changed. He said that he had many letters written by Sewall to his wife, urging her to leave her husband for him. Crowley had also begun an action for absolute divorce."6
Capt. Edward Robinson "Ned" Sewall married secondly Katherine White, daughter of Peter White and Julia Mulroy, on 4 October 1899 in Manhattan, New York, New York.7 Capt. Edward Robinson "Ned" Sewall died on 7 July 19268 and is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Bath, Maine.8

Egbert Thatcher Sewall1

M, b. 10 August 1830, d. 11 June 1868
     Egbert Thatcher Sewall was born on 10 August 1830.2 He was the son of Rufus K. Sewall and Phoebe Merrill.1 Egbert Thatcher Sewall appears on the census of 1850 at Edgecomb, Lincoln County, Maine, listed as a tin plate worker.3 He married Elizabeth Gove Cunningham, daughter of Thomas Cunningham and Elizabeth Leeman Gove.4 Egbert Thatcher Sewall died on 11 June 1868 off Diamond Shoals, Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, at the age of 37.

The barque Istria, under command of Capt. Egbert Thacher Sewall, son of Rufus Sewall, Esq., and a brother of Capt. Merrill Sewall, left New Orleans early in the summer bound for Havre, France. The cargo of the Istria consisted of 2,076 bales of cotton; 71 hogsheads of tobacco and 2,460 staves.

On June 11, 1868, when off the coast of North Carolina, as she was rounding Cape Hatteras, the Istria struck on Diamond Shoals, that treacherous reef, where so many vessels have foundered that it is called "the graveyard of the Atlantic." Eleven persons were drowned. While attempting to escape on a raft the cabin boy slipped overboard, and in trying to save him Captain Sewall lost his own life.

Only four of the ship's company were saved, the first and second mates and two Kanakas. Marsden Cunningham of Edgecomb, a brother of the captain's wife, was first officer, and Henry Edwin Sewall, still under twenty years of age, a son of Rufus King Sewall of Wiscasset and a nephew of Captain Sewall, was second officer. They escaped by floating ashore on a hatch.5
