Family of W. Devereux make contact.

June 19, 2009

Mary Louise Pearce and Stewart J. Nolan have made contact today regarding their great grandfather, W. Devereux who was a member of the famous 1920 Hermina rescue.

W. Devereux was on the Irish Ferry S.S. St. Patrick, alongside the quay, when the Chaterhouse was called out.

He was a native of Wexford.

The contact with this family [only the second family in contact with me – Tom Perkins’ family was the initial contact] is in its early stages so I hope they will supply us with more details, either through emails or in the ‘Blog’!
