Note:

During Amazon's maiden voyage, its captain caught pneumonia and later died. The ship was damaged on several occasions, most notably in October 1867, when it ran aground in Cow Bay, Cape Breton Island. The following year the Amazon was sold to the American Richard W. Haines, who renamed it the Mary Celeste. The Celeste was discovered adrift and deserted in the Atlantic Ocean off the Azores Islands on December 4, 1872.
