Crew of Mary Celeste

Mary Celeste was an American brig with a crew of eight and two passengers, the master's wife and infant daughter, which embarked on her fatal voyage, from New York to Genoa, in the autumn of 1872. The master, Benjamin Briggs, was highly experienced and highly respected, a man of good character and strong religious beliefs. The ship was found adrift in the Atlantic Ocean a few days later, totally deserted, but in totally seaworthy conditions and with the crew’s belongings perfectly intact. The crew was never seen or heard from again.
