    Abyssinia [1870-1891]
    Illustration of the steamship Abyssinia, the ship that brought several Stone family members to the United States in 1882. The Abyssinia was built by J. & G. Thomson, Glasgow for the British and North American Royal Mail Steam Packet Co. (later Cunard Steam Ship Co). She was a 3,376 gross ton ship, 363.5 feet (length) x 42.2 feet (beam), straight stem, one funnel, three masts(rigged for sail), iron construction, single screw and a speed of 13 knots. She launched 3 Mar 1870. She started her maiden voyage 24 May 1870 when she left Liverpool for Queenstown (Cobh) and New York. She started her last voyage on this service 18 Sep 1880 and was returned to the builders in part payment for the new ships Servia and Catalonia. She was sold to the Guion Line and commenced Liverpool - Queenstown - New York sailings on 20 Nov 1880 and in 1882 was fitted with compound engines. Her last voyage on this route started 27 Mar 1886 and between 1887 to 1891 she ran on the Pacific for Canadian Pacific Line. She resumed Liverpool - Queenstown - New York route 28 Nov 1891 and on 13 Dec 1891 she left New York for Liverpool, but was destroyed at sea by fire 18 Dec 1891. All the passengers and crew were rescued by the German liner Spree [North Atlantic Seaway by N.R.P.Bonsor, vol.1,p.151]. Illustration courtesy of MyFamily.com, Inc.
