  • Cranberry Isles, Great Cranberry Island
Ralph Stanley and Charles B. Morrill went out to the Cranberry Isles in Ralph's boat, "Seven Sisters", on October 29, 2009 to photograph the boiler for the story in SWHPL 9935. While searching for the rock they came across this old 2 cycle, 2 cylinder Knox engine. Ralph remembered that the engine, an old "hand cranker, had originally belonged to his grandfather, Arno Preston Stanley (1865-1937). He never did anything with it. Ralph considered putting it in his first boat, but it was too heavy. The engine lay on the wharf for years and when the wharf was blew down in a storm c. 1978 the workers tossed it, or it fell, onto the rocks below where it is today. "The Boiler" started out at the end of Fish Point on Great Cranberry. Ralph is standing near the point of the arrow on the map where the boiler is now. The blue house in the background of the photograph was Charles "Peter" Emery Richardson's boat house. Peter was born to Meltiah Jordan and Mary Catherine "Carrie" Stanley Richardson on January 14, 1885. Peter married Nellie G. Curley who was born in 1884 and died in 1957. Peter died on July 14, 1971.
