“William and Mary”

 The Captain of the William and Mary was Spinson. It left Liverpool on March 22,1853
 with 81 passengers of Dutch birth, six of whom remained at Liverpool. Their leader was
 O.E.Bonnema. Also aboard were 176 Irishmen. The Irish names were not included in the
 list I found but I will try to locate them and add them at a later time.

 The William and Mary was shipwrecked near Nassau in the Bahamas on Isaac Rock.
 The Passengers were deserted and left for dead by the Captain and crew. The Passengers
 were rescued by a group of Blacks who also collected money for them to continue on to
 New Orleans. When the group arrived at New Orleans on June 11,1853 they found that
 the Captain and crew had preceded them and falsely reported that “all were lost at sea”.
 Eleven passengers were lost at sea before the shipwreck but that was due to sickness.
 From New Orleans they went on to Wisconsin and Michigan.
