Yesterday I posted information about the sinking of the Caribsea in 1942. Here is a photo of the cross which stands on the altar of the Ocracoke United Methodist Church.

This wooden cross was fashioned by my grandfather, Homer Howard, from wreckage of the Caribsea.

  1. I expected to see a crude cross, fashioned hastily out of the battered wreckage ... that's beautiful!
