S.S. Tuscarora

The Morton Allan Directory of European Passenger Steamship Arrivals lists steamship arrivals in New York between 1890 and 1930 and was first published in 1931. Unfortunately it is known to contain many errors and inaccuracies. Perhaps among these it lists the Tuscarora sailing regularly for the Atlantic Transport Line in 1900 — nine of her arrivals between February and November are recorded. These were not occasional additional sailings but a series of regular arrivals.

This ship, which has not yet been positively identified, was presumably operating under charter to the line. There was a 3,925 ton oil tanker named Tuscarora built in 1898 for the Anglo American Oil Company, and a smaller vessel of the same name was built by the Globe Iron Works of Cleveland, Ohio in 1890, but neither of these seems a likely candidate.
