The dragger Four Sisters was returning to New Bedford with a hold full of scallops when she was lost in a sudden storm on April 7 or 8 east of Nantucket. All ten men on board were lost, and an extensive Coast Guard search failed to find any trace of the ship or the crew. Twelve children were left fatherless.
The William Landry was lost in the same storm.
