About George H. Taylor

In the early hours of 22 November 1873, Ville du Havre collided with the Scottish three-masted iron clipper, Loch Earn and sank in 12 minutes with the loss of 226 lives.[2] Only 61 passengers and 26 crew members survived, rescued by Loch Earn and subsequently, an American vessel, the Tremountain.

This is the shipwreck which took Horatio Spafford's four daughters, about which event he penned It Is Well With My Soul.
