Captain Livingston

Captain Livingston was responsible for transporting the HBC lumber contracted by an Alexander Sim, who owned corn mills in Callooney, Co Sligo, Ireland and visited Glasgow when that ship arrived at its port. In September 1849, Livingston was in Nisqually for that purpose, having recently journeyed from the Cape of Africa to San Francisco in June of that year. By March 1854, the vessel was up for sale, though still afloat and taking jobs.
