My ancestor, Evan Evans, was on the "Argo" in 1899 as an A.B. The ship was registered in West Hartlepool and the official number was 102733 and she had a registered tonnage of 1,970. He signed on in Barry on June 2nd; 1899 and paid off in Barry on September 11th; 1899. The voyage description was "Columbo" and he had a "Very Good" discharge for conduct and character. Can anyone give me any more information on this ship or know where I can get a photo of her? Thanks.
