50 years ago: Chemical Trader crew members pay a visit to family

In the June 22, 1966 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a precursor of the Cayman Compass, North Side correspondent Nettie McCoy wrote:

Northside-50-years-final“Returning on Thursday 16th were Mrs. Linton Whittaker and family, who went to Miami to re-register, and her sister-in-law, Gloria Whittaker.

“The motor vessel Chemical Trader called in at George Town on Sunday 19th for a two day stay. Three of the crew are from this district: Messrs. Franklin Ebanks, Bryan Miller and Quinston Connolly. These brief calls to the island always afford the crew an opportunity of reuniting with their families.

“On Sunday 19th, the regular Sunday afternoon service of the United Church was conducted by its minister, Rev. L. Williams who had returned from Jamaica in the morning, where he had been attending to business for the Church. It was communion service and was fairly well attended.”
